All around the world,
International Women's Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the
achievements of women while calling for greater equality.
Make It Happen is the 2015
theme for our international women’s day.com global hub, encouraging effective
action for advancing and recognising women. Each year International Women's Day
(IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was held in
1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social
achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational
institutions, women's groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
Various organisations identify their own International Women's
Day theme, specific to their local context and interests. Many charities, NGOs
and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. For
example, organisations like the UN, Oxfam, Women for Women, Care International,
Plan, World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and more -
run exciting and powerful campaigns that raise awareness and encourage
donations for good causes. The UN has been declaring an annual equality theme for many years.
