It began in 1911 and has been growing stronger ever since. This year's theme #BalanceforBetter is aimed at men and women who are willing to work and raise awareness for a gender-balanced world. It's essential for us to continue to grow together.
We all have a part to play and collectively it is our responsibility to take action and drive gender-balance across the world. International Women's Day is a key component in the quest for equality. It is now supported by thousands of groups, gatherings and events worldwide.
So, it's time to put your hands out and show off your #BalanceforBetter pose. Do what you can to contribute to this day. Let's make a difference for women everywhere!
If you didn't know I'm celebrating International Women's Day next week, Saturday 16th March 2019. Come join us.
