International Women’s Day 2022
International Women’s Day is an important celebration. As a matter of fact, International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global holiday celebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women.It is also a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
Spurred on by the universal female suffrage movement that had begun in New Zealand, IWD originated from labor movements in North America and Europe during the early 20th century.The earliest version was purportedly a “Women’s Day” organized by the Socialist Party of America in New York City February 28, 1909. This inspired German delegates at the 1910 International Socialist Women’s Conference to propose “a special Women’s Day” be organized annually, albeit with no set date.The theme of International Women’s Day is very burning in the year 2022.IWD 2022 campaign theme: #BreakTheBias
Imagine a gender equal world.A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.A world where difference is valued and celebrated.Together we can forge women’s equality.Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.Without a doubt, Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.We can break the bias in our communities.We hope that the entire world and humanity at large takes a pledge to make world a better place for women .
