International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8th to honor the achievements of women and to raise awareness about gender inequality. This day has been celebrated since the early 1900s and has become an important global day of recognition for women.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is "Embrace Equity," which encourages an inclusive atmosphere by providing equal chances to all individuals, regardless of background. Equity conveys a sense of belonging to everyone and allows steps to be taken toward the ultimate goal: equality for all.

Equality VS Equity

International Women’s Day is a reminder that gender inequality still exists in many parts of the world. Women are often paid less than men for doing the same work and are underrepresented in leadership positions. They also face various forms of violence and discrimination, including sexual harassment and domestic violence.

International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the progress that has been made towards gender equality and to highlight the work that still needs to be done. It is a day to celebrate the achievements of women and to recognize their contributions to society.

One of the ways to celebrate International Women’s Day is by supporting women-owned businesses and organizations. Women-owned businesses are a significant contributor to the global economy and supporting them can help to create more opportunities for women.
