March 8th every year marks International Women’s Day! On this day, people the world over celebrate the amazing contributions that women have had and continue to have.
This year the campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge‘. The IWD organisation go on to say: “We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.”
