The tradition of celebrating International Women's Day began more than a century ago, in 1910, with the aim of promoting equal rights for all genders, a goal we continue to strive for today.

International Women's Day is a global observance held annually on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements and contributions in various fields. From political to social, cultural, and economic domains, women's strides and accomplishments are acknowledged and applauded on this day. This day also serves as an important platform to raise awareness about the ongoing struggles and challenges women face and emphasise the work still needed to achieve gender equality.

The theme for International Women's Day in 2024 is 'DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.' This theme reflects the importance of access to technology and digital literacy in empowering women and girls globally. It also focuses on safeguarding the digital rights of women and girls and addressing the issue of online gender-based violence.

Celebrating International Women’s Day is crucial for recognising women's diverse achievements across the globe. It's also an important reminder that many women still face significant barriers in achieving their full potential, with fundamental rights like health and education often compromised.

Thus, International Women's Day serves as an annual reminder to continue advocating for equality and working towards a more inclusive and equitable world.
