Celebrating International Women’s Day 2022
Globally, the 8th of March every year is a day set aside to celebrate women and the immense impact they are making in our world today.
A LITTLE INTRODUCTION
The first official National Women’s Day was held in New York City in 1909. The Socialist Party of America declared the day a holiday to mark the anniversary of a march a year earlier. At that event, 15,000 women took to the streets to demand shorter working hours, better pay and the right to vote.
1ST INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
In 1975, the United Nations declared March 8th to be International Women’s Day. According to the BBC, that date was picked to commemorate an event in 1917. That’s when a group of women in Russia held a four-day strike to demand peace, bread and the right to vote.
The theme for 2022 International women’s day is “Break the Bias.”
Imagine a gender-equal world. A world that is free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, fair, and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
