International Women's Day

510 mother and baby

Gender parity has real-life implications for the health of females.

Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900’s, the first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911.

International Women’s Day looks to address the issue of inequality between the sexes and the lack of opportunity for females in a world that tilts towards males both in developed and non-developed nations.

The issue of gender parity has real consequences on the health of females. Inequality has a negative impact on the physical and mental health of millions of girls and women across the globe.

International Women’s Day is also a time to reflect on the achievements and contributions of women all over the world. Whether they be global, on a national level or within their communities.

Events are held by women’s networks, corporations, charities, educational institutions, government bodies, political parties, the media and further communities.

Everyone can play a purposeful part in pressing for gender parity.

Let’s all #PressforProgress!
