International Women’s Day 2021
Women’s Rights And Gender Equality Are On The Rise in 2021.
Twenty-five years after the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action – a progressive road to gender equality – it is time to look back and close the gaps with bold, decisive action.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing the Women’s Rights”.
The Generation Equality campaign unites people of all genders, ages, ethnicities, ethnicities, religions, and nationalities, to carry out actions that will create a world equal to the gender we all deserve.
Together, we want to promote an end to homosexual violence; we want economic justice and the rights of all; physical independence, sexual health and rights; and women’s act of climate justice. We want technology and the introduction of gender equality; and women’s leadership.
Small actions can have a profound effect on making the idea more realistic. On International Women’s Day, join #GenerationEquality and be part of an organization.

Small actions return big impact
From the Liberian women’s sex strike that paved the way for peace to the Icelandic “Day of Women Off” which seeks economic equality in the global impact of the #MeToo organization, history has taught us that change is possible through collective activism.

Globally and for decades, we have all participated in the global struggle for gender equality.
