Choose to Challenge this International Women’s Day!
03 Mar 2021
IWD 2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge
Choose to challenge and call out gender bias
The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is Choose to Challenge. The CUC Network is supporting women in regional, rural and remote Australia to pursue higher education, and this helps women make strides in their local community.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- celebrate women’s achievements
- raise awareness about women’s equality
- lobby for accelerated gender parity
- fundraise for female-focused charities
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
So, hand up high to show you're in
