International Women's Day




How will you #PressforProgress


Thursday March 8th marks International Women’s Day and this year we all are urged to #PressforProgress. Motivated by the global #MeToo and #Timesup campaigns, IWD calls for us all act, to not become complacent. The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap report states that gender parity is over 200 years away! If we become complacent, it won’t happen in our lifetime or our children’s’ lifetime.

So how can you take action?

Select the one area that you commit to specifically concentrate on to press for progress for gender parity in your own sphere of influence.

Embed the IWD 2018 Widget on your own website or intranet to crowdsource a collective #PressforProgress to help drive gender parity.

Share your pictures via social media showing how you #PressforProgress. It could be as simple as a ‘hand out’ pressing action or be as creative as you can be. IWD will be watching out to amplify and promote the most engaging imagery.

Individually, we are but one drop but together we are an ocean, and we can bring about an end to gender parity.
