Celebrating International Women's Day on March 8th

Posted by Olivia on 4th Mar 2024


International Women's Day (IWD) is a global celebration dedicated to recognising the achievements and contributions of women throughout history. It serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for gender equality and the importance of empowering women in all aspects of life. Held annually on March 8th, International Women's Day has become a significant day for advocacy, awareness, and celebration.





What is International Women's Day and when did it start?

International Women's Day has its roots in the early 20th century and emerged as a result of the relentless efforts of women advocating for their rights and social justice. The catalyst for this global movement can be traced back to the difficult times of industrialisation and the fight for women's suffrage. 


What is the significance of March 8th?

This movement began on March 8, 1908, when a group of 15,000 courageous women marched through the streets of New York City, demanding better working conditions, shorter hours, and the right to vote. This historic event set the stage for what would later become International Women's Day. Over the years, the celebration evolved and gained international recognition, with countries around the world adopting March 8th as a symbolic date to honour the resilience of women and commemorate the ongoing struggle for gender equality. The early activists who paved the way for this movement laid the foundation for a day that transcends borders, cultures, and backgrounds, uniting people globally in the pursuit of a more equitable and inclusive world.


What is the theme for Women’s Day, this year in 2024?

The theme for International Women's Day 2024, "Inspire Inclusion" resonates with a powerful message that urges individuals and communities to actively foster an environment where every woman is recognised, valued, and embraced. Inclusion goes beyond mere acknowledgment; it signifies a commitment to dismantling barriers and creating spaces that amplify diverse voices. This theme encourages us to inspire change by challenging prejudices, embracing differences, and promoting equality. It emphasises the collective responsibility to ensure that every woman, regardless of background, ethnicity, or circumstance, feels a sense of belonging and is given the opportunity to thrive. "Inspire Inclusion" serves as a rallying call for us to unite in the pursuit of a world where all women can participate fully and authentically in every aspect of life, contributing their unique perspectives to shape a more equitable and harmonious society.




International Women's Day is a powerful occasion to reflect on the progress made in the fight for gender equality and to recommit to the ongoing work ahead. By understanding the history, supporting women in various ways, and actively advocating for equality, we can contribute to a more inclusive and empowered world for everyone. So, let's celebrate the achievements of women, acknowledge the challenges they face, and work together towards a future where equality is the norm.
