International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th every year. It is a day where women’s rights are the focal point. The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911 and was supported by over 1 million people. It has increased every year since.
The theme for the 2019 campaign is #BalanceForBetter. This campaign runs all year long. It doesn’t just end on International Women’s Day. The focus is to build a gender-balanced world. Gender Balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive and excel.
Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist, and activist once explained “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.”

Motivate others: This can be done by striking the #BalanceforBetter pose. You can see the pose here.
