Women’s equality has made positive gains but the world is still unequal.

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing global attention on areas requiring further action.

Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8, with the first day being held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #PressForProgress.

There has already been a great deal of solidarity and movement in recent months. According to UN Women, This year, International Women’s Day comes on the heels of unprecedented global movement for women’s rights, equality and justice.”

In the UK, 2018 is the Year of Women, coinciding with the centenary of some women achieving the vote. There have also been widespread campaigns, such as #MeToo and #TimesUp, both highlighting sexual harassment and the need for it to stop.

#PressForProgress is a strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked women from all backgrounds, ethnicity and ages to tell us what exactly the day means to them:
