International Women's Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality, as the day is marked annually on March 8th.
This year's campaign theme for International Women's Day is 'Choose To Challenge' with the hashtag #ChooseToChallenge. Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women's Day. Purple signifying justice and dignity, Green symbolizing hope, and White represents purity.
Three central beliefs guide the purpose and provisions of the International Women's Day website:
Identifying, celebrating and increasing visibility of women's achievements, strategic collaborations based on a foundation of shared purpose, and worldwide awareness raising via meaningful narratives.
