International Women's Day – a global day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women, from the social and cultural to the economic and political – falls on 8 March 2023.
This year's theme is "#EmbraceEquity", with a focus on on gender equity and a campaign that aims to get the world talking about why "equal opportunities are no longer enough" . True inclusion and belonging require equitable action for a more gender equal world that is free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
There are plenty of ways to get involved in the annual event, from taking part in the accompanying social media campaign, celebrate women's achievements at various IWD events to donating to charities that help women across the world, including the likes of the Red Cross, but another easy way to show your support is by shopping with intention.
