International Women's Day 2021
International Women's Day takes place annually on 8 March. The day is supported globally by industry, governments, educational institutions, community groups, professional associations, women's networks, charities, the media and more.
IWD provides an important moment to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and is a call to action for equality and gender parity, raising awareness against all bias.
