International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day is also a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Since its origins at the second International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen 1910, the International Women’s Day commemoration is an event recognised and celebrated by many organisations. In 2024, the IWD organisation's theme is ‘Inspire Inclusion’ and the United Nation’s theme is ‘Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress.’
