Three actions you can take on International Women's Day

Did you know that no country in the world has achieved gender equality?

Yep, you read that correctly!

That's why it's important that you join us in celebrating one of the most important day’s this year - International Women's Day.

2021 is a crucial year for gender equality. From global opportunities like the G7 Summit, G20, Generation Equality Forum and the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), to national and local action advancing progress for women and girls, gender equality must be at the heart of decision-making.

We all have a responsibility to shout about Goal 5 and make sure everyone, everywhere understands the urgency of achieving Gender Equality.

COVID-19 is eroding the necessary progress that was made towards gender equality in the last two decades. Now is the time to take action across every sphere; from health to the economy, security to social protection to ensure no woman or girl is left behind.

So this International Women's Day, join us by taking these simple actions:

  • Use our new colourful Zoom and Teams backgrounds to revitalise your calls and at the same time raise awareness about the importance of gender equality! Download your new background today
  • We need urgent change for women and girls right now. On International Women's Day, listen and share this beautiful performance by the brilliantly talented Ogi Ifediora of ‘A Change is Gonna Come’.
  • Watch Nations United to learn more about the challenges we face when it comes to gender equality and what the solutions are.
