International Woman’s Day (IWD) occurs every year on March 8th.

This year’s slogan is #EachforEqual, which aims to get people thinking about how they can help forge a gender equal world. IWD serves as a time to honor women’s achievements and recognize the strides that have been made towards equality- as well as the work that is still left to be done.
