International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on 8 March to commemorate women’s cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements.

It is also a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as: Gender Equality,Reproductive Rights, and Violence & Abuse Against Women.

Spurred on by the universal female suffrage movement that had begun in New Zealand, IWD originated from labour movements in North America and Europe during the early 20th century.


The theme for International Women’s Day, 8 March 2022 (IWD 2022), recognises the contribution of women and girls worldwide, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, building a more sustainable future for all.

Advancing gender equality in the context of the climate crisis and disaster risk reduction is one of the greatest global challenges of the 21st century.
The issues of climate change and sustainability have had and will continue to have severe and lasting impacts on our environment, economic and social development.

Women are increasingly being recognised as more vulnerable to climate change impacts than men. This is because they constitute the majority of the worlds poor and are more dependent on the natural resources that climate change threatens the most.
