International Women’s Day takes place on 8 March 2023. It is a global day where, worldwide, groups come together to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender equality and brings attention to issues such as reproductive rights and violence and abuse against women. Each year has a different theme. The theme for 2023 is Embrace Equity. Previous themes have been around women in leadership, gender equality for a sustainable tomorrow, time is now: rural and urban activists transforming people’s lives.
