International Women's Day

iwd

International Women's Day (IWD) takes place on the 8 March and it is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.

IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. 

Below you will find how we celebrated International Women's Day in the previous years, at SW9:
