Breaking the Bias on International Women’s Day
Tuesday March 8th is International Women’s Day. An annual date where we encourage people to imagine; a world where difference is valued and celebrated. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that it is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. This year’s IWD theme is #BreaktheBias.
We are all responsible for breaking the bias against women within our families, communities, schools, and in our workplaces.
On this day we look to encourage and celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Making a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
Gender equality should continuously be on our agenda, especially in times like these. Often women and girls are the first victims of crises. I have no doubt that the world needs more women in the places of leadership to advocate and indorse peace.
On March 8th I invite you to share your messages of hope and inspiration on social media by posting a photo of yourself crossing your arms in the universal symbol for stop and say how you will help break the gender bias using the hashtag #BreakTheBias. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias
