International Women’s Day is a global day to celebrate social, economic, cultural, and political success. The day also highlights the need to speed up sex.

Marked annually on March 8, International Women’s Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- Celebrate the success of women
- Women’s equality awareness
- Advocating for the acceleration of gender equality
- Fundraising for women aid agencies

Purple, green, and white are the colors of International Women’s Day. Purple means justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity, even if it is controversial. The colors came from the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.
Who can support International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is not in any country, group, or organization. There is no single government, NGO, charity, company, educational institution, women’s network, or news hub for International Women’s Day. That day is for all parties collectively everywhere. Gloria Steinem, a world-renowned woman, journalist, and activist once explained “The issue of women’s struggle for equality is not about one woman or one organization, but the efforts of all human rights activists.” So make International Women’s Day your day and do your best to make a positive difference for women.

Do we still need International Women’s Day?
Yes! There is no room for satisfaction. According to the World Economic Forum, sadly none of us will see gender equality in our lifetime, and it is unlikely that most of our children will. Gender equality will not be achieved for nearly a century.
There is an urgent task to be done – and we can all play a role.
