The world is saluting International Women’s Day (IWD) every day of the week in March. Today is the official global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. The 2022 campaign theme is Break The Bias.
WHY WOMEN ROAR FOR EQUALITY
Women are still striving for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth and more.
“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.” — Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist
BREAK THE BIAS
Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can break the bias in our communities. We can break the bias in our workplaces. We can break the bias in our schools, colleges and universities.
Together, we can all break the bias – on International Women’s Day (IWD) and beyond. Collectively, each one of us can help make change happen. Collectively, each one of us can help to create a gender equal world.
IWD SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN: #BREAKTHEBIAS
To join the collective voice for International Women’s Day you can post your #IWD2022 message on social media with your “hands crossed” pose for a strong call-to-action in solidarity for others to support the #BreakTheBias campaign. The campaign theme runs all year long to amplify the message — Collective action and shared responsibility to encourage further people to commit to helping forge an inclusive world.
There are many events you can attend today. Many ways to show your support throughout Women’s History Month in March. The United Nations celebrated IWD on Friday, March 6th. What normally would have been open to pubic registration was restricted to those already cleared due to the health pandemic of the Coronavirus. A Socially Sparked® solution — livestreaming — thanks to the modern era of technology.
In the United States, The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum are commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.
