On International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating the achievements of great women who are blazing their own historical trails to kick off Women’s History Month. We’re pleased to be commemorating the beauty, variety, and achievements of women all over the world on International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, 2020. This historic day honors not just one woman, country, or organization, but all women around the world who inspire others to do better, make a difference, and effect change.
What is International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day is a worldwide commemoration of women’s accomplishments in the fields of economics, culture, politics, and social justice. IWD began in 1908 when 15,000 women marched through New York City seeking voting rights, higher wages, and shorter work hours. IWD has been at the forefront of reminding people how far we’ve come and how much work still remains as each decade finds a new method to push for women’s rights around the world.
#EachforEqual is the 2020 Campaign Theme, which urges people to question preconceptions, bias, and women’s accomplishments. #EachforEqual aims to dispel the myth that equality is solely a “women’s issue,” instead of emphasizing that it is a business issue that extends to how we can create a better workplace and community. IWD is using #EachforEqual as a year-long campaign that will continue to promote a “gender-equal world” through discussion and conversation.
