International Women’s Day is an annual event that celebrates all the amazing things women have achieved. It is a way to show how women have and continue to influence the world. As well as celebrating brilliant women, it’s also used as a day to highlight and raise awareness about issues that women still face.

Historically, women have been denied the right to vote, to work, and lots of other things, too. Because of brilliant women who fought against these things, women have a lot more say in the world around us now. But there are still many issues that women continue to face and fight for today.

The theme for 2022 is #BreaktheBias. The campaign asks you to cross your arms in solidarity to call out gender bias, discrimination, and stereotyping. Together, we can forge women’s equality.

It’s extremely important to celebrate International Women’s Day to honor and appreciate the different achievements that women have accomplished around the world, including successes in society, economy, politics, and culture.

It’s also a time to remember those who continue to go unheard and are prevented from reaching their full potential, as basic rights like health and education are still not recognized for some women around the world.
