International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8. This year’s theme is Beijing +20: Let’s not wait another years to achieve gender equality. IWD 2015 celebrates the progress made towards gender equality since 189 countries signed the Beijing Platform for Action in 1995.
IWD 2015 will both celebrate what has been achieved since this milestone, and reflect upon what still needs to be done, so that we don’t wait another 20 years to achieve gender equality.
Each year, the Australian National Committee for UN Women hosts International Women’s Day events across Australia.
Support IWD by donating, buying a purple ribbon, hosting a fundraising event, or attending one of UN Women Australia’s IWD events across Australia. For more information visit www.unwomen.org.au
