This year the theme is ‘Choose To Challenge’.

International Women’s Day has been celebrated for years now, and while many people think of it as a feminist cause, its roots lie in the labour movement.

The day celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women from all walks of life while highlighting the day-to-day problems they face in the professional environment.

The first-ever Women’s Day was organized in 1911 by the early 20th century Marxist from Germany Clara Zetkin, who was born in Germany’s Wiederau.

Two years later, in 1913, the date was changed to March 8, and it continues to be celebrated as such every year.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge, indicating that a “challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change”.

Every day, through our actions, and in the way we lead, talk, question and act, we challenge norms, transform habits, change laws, take action and inspire others to create a world without gender-based discrimination. We are Generation Equality rising.

Don’t let anyone tell you you’re weak because you’re a woman.
