We know that diverse teams make better products, and we also know that there is always more work to do.

How will you Press For Progress (in 2018) ?

International Women’s Day, March 8, 2018

Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. There’s a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

The Time is Now

This International Women’s Day, UN Women celebrates the rural and urban activists who have transformed the lives of women around the world. From grassroots campaigns to global movements, women’s activism over the decades has paved the way for women’s rights and a more equal future.

How International Women’s Day was celebrated around the world

Millions of women gathered across the world to strike, protest, party and pay tribute to women’s achievements to mark International Women’s Day on Thursday. The message was spelt out that much work still needed to be done to achieve global gender equality.

IWD 2016 campaign theme: “Pledge For Parity”

Videos published on 5 Mar 2016 by EY Global.

Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement.

And we have much to celebrate today. But progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places.

The World Economic Forum predicted in 2014 that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. Then one year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn’t close entirely until 2133.

International Women’s Day Doodle 2014

March 8 is the International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day of recognition

Women have historically been underrepresented in almost all fields: science, school curricula, business, politics—and, sadly, doodles. In addition to Google’s continued effort for doodle diversity and inclusion, last year’s truly International Women’s Day doodle features a host of inspiring women from around the world, including the President of Lithuania, a brave Pakistani education activist, an ever-curious explorer, and dozens more. Find the full list of participants.
