International Women’s Day – 8th March 2022
International Women’s Day is celebrated each year on 8th March to commemorate female achievements in the arts, politics, and socioeconomic all over the world.
In addition, it is a focal point for the women’s rights movement, addressing issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights and abuse against women.
Break The Bias
This year, the campaign theme is Break The Bias. Imagine if you will a world in which women are treated equally. A world without bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
Ultimately, to see a diverse, equitable, and inclusive world. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Challenge and Commitment
Additionally, women are encouraged to challenge pre-determined stereotypes. Specifically based on their gender and call out racism and sexism.
Most importantly, women worldwide are asking others to raise their hands to show they commit to Break The Bias and calling out inequality.
A Day to Celebrate
First of all, this day aims to recognise and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women worldwide in the past year.
Also, Women’s Day calls upon gender equality. While no organisation is solely responsible for women’s day, there is often a theme supporting a specific agenda. For example, past themes have been:
- A World Free of Violence Against Women.
- Empower Rural Women, End Poverty and Hunger.
- A Promise is a Promise – Time for Action to End Violence Against Women.
Specifically, each theme has raised an issue that directly affects women worldwide. In addition, many charities, business leaders and celebrities support the day in different ways.
For example, singer and activist Annie Lennox has previously led a march across London’s iconic bridges to raise awareness supporting the global charity Women for Women International.
International Women’s Day Origin
The earliest observance of Women’s Day, called National Woman’s Day, took place on 28th February 1909, in New York City, at the suggestion of activist Theresa Malkiel.
Then, in August 1910, the Socialist Second International in Copenhagen, Denmark, held an International Socialist Women’s Conference to a greater audience.
Incredibly, 0ver a million people marked the first International Women’s Day in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland in 1911. Ultimately, by 1917, Soviet Russian women were granted suffrage.
It remained largely a communist holiday until 1967 when it was popularized by second-wave feminists. This was a game-changer in many ways. Finally, in 1975, the date was recognized by the United Nations.
