International Women’s Day 2021

Today is International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day celebrating women and their achievements in the social, economic, cultural and political arenas. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity, and raising awareness of gender issues.

It comes during Queensland Women’s Week (3 – 14 March) which is recognising strong women across our community.

This year’s theme is ‘Choose to Challenge‘ – an encouragement to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. Individuals and organisations are invited to send in their #ChooseToChallenge images to the International Women’s Day website and on social media.
