International Women's Day 8th March 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.
Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day,
We can break the bias in our communities.
We can break the bias in our workplaces.
We can break the bias in our schools, colleges and universities.
Together, we can all break the bias - on International Women's Day (IWD) and beyond.
Did you know that, rather poignantly, we use March 8 because that was the day Russian women gained the vote in 1911?
COP26 highlighted that women bear the brunt of climate change and have published "5 reasons Climate Changes Needs Women." The UN recognises that women are "effective and powerful leaders and change-makers" in the fight to protect the planet. Let’s celebrate the contribution of women and girls who are leading the charge on climate change to build a better future.
Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow!
