International Women's Day

Themes of International Women's Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is all about celebrating the achievements and accomplishments of all the amazing women around us. Signifying how far we have come as a society.

The day first made its way to Australia as the Militant Women’s Movement called for equal pay for equal work. In 1931, annual marches began in Sydney and Melbourne and continue to be held today!

The campaign theme for IWD 2023, set by the United Nations Australia, is Cracking The Code: Innovation for a gender equal future. This theme puts emphasis on the part that transformative ideas, technologies, and accessible education can have in fighting prejudice and the exclusion of women all over the world.

I think its important to celebrate International Women’s Day as it is a day that allows us to come together to celebrate the achievements of the amazing women in our lives both inside and outside of the workplace. I think this day also acts as a reminder of the challenges that women around the world continue to face each day, which is why it remains such a significant date for all.
