International Women's Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

Yes, the 8th of March is International Women’s Day. The campaign theme for IWD 2017 is #BeBoldForChange. For global change to really take place, local action needs to occur and there are many ways you can get involved.

The UN Secretary-General's Message for International Women’s Day for 2017 begins:
Women’s rights are human rights. But in these troubled times, as our world becomes more unpredictable and chaotic, the rights of women and girls are being reduced, restricted and reversed. Empowering women and girls is the only way to protect their rights and make sure they can realize their full potential.
