Get Involved in International Women’s Day 2021 on Monday 8th March!

On 8th March it’s International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme is Choose to Challenge. This is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality by choosing to challenge the current gender inequalities that exist throughout the world. 

International Women’s Day started back in 1911 and takes place every year on 8th March, and everyone is welcome to support it. 

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist, nor to any one organisation, but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”  

It’s easy to get involved to show your solidarity, simply raise your hand high to Strike the Choose To Challenge pose and share on social media using #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021 to encourage people to commit to helping forge an inclusive world and to question stereotypes.

This call to action is for all genders, so everyone can get involved by simply raising their hand and sharing their photo!
