International Women’s Day takes place on 8 March 2020.
This year’s campaign, #EachForEqual, draws attention to the difference individuals can make.
Western Europe currently has the highest gender parity rating at 76.7%.
Complete gender equality may not be achieved for another century.
"An equal world is an enabled world" - and every one of us can do our bit to bring about gender equality.
That’s the core message of #EachForEqual, the campaign at the centre of this year’s International Women’s Day. It seeks to draw attention to the idea that gender inequality isn’t a women’s issue, but an economic one – as gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
Business boardrooms, government departments and media coverage are just some of the key areas of focus highlighted by the campaign.
