International Women’s Day has been observed across the globe for over one hundred years.

Celebrated since the mid 1970s on 8th March, this important day is an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge the struggles and achievements of women through the years. It’s also a reminder that each and every one of us can contribute to ensure that all girls and young women will look forward to a safe, fulfilling future with unlimited equal opportunities and freedom of choice.

The United Nations’ 2015 theme for International Women’s Day is “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”

And the global hub, has selected “Make It Happen” as its theme.

So Make It Happen – connect with one of the many International Women’s Day events … and be inspired!
