Learn more about International Women’s Day

Help recognize the important and widespread achievements of women on March 8, 2022—International Women’s Day.

The UN’s theme for 2022 International Women’s Day (IWD) is “gender equality for a sustainable future.” This highlights the importance of empowering women to achieve both sustainable development and greater gender equality. Women are effective and powerful decision-makers, and women’s participation in sustainability initiatives results in more effective climate action.

The theme of the 2022 International Women’s Day is #BreakTheBias. IWD encourages you to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness of gender bias, and take action to achieve equality. Gender biases reduce opportunities for women, and both awareness and action are needed to reduce bias and level the playing field. IWD challenges you to strike the IWD 2022 pose of crossing your arms and sharing your #BreakTheBias image, video, resources, presentation, or articles on social media with the hashtags #IWD2022 #BreakTheBias.
