“From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence,” the official website of International Women’s Day said.
The website adds that balance is not a women’s issue but a business issue, explaining that the race for gender equality is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage.
The campaign theme which runs year long provides for a unified direction of gender equality and IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. The first International Women’s Day was observed in 1911 by over one million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.
So what can you do to support IWD this year? The websites asks to post your #IWD2019 message on social media with your "hands out" balance pose for a strong call-to-action for others to also help forge a #BalanceforBetter.
