Choose to Challenge

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated all around the world on 8th March. The United Nations first celebrated International Women’s Day in 1975, but its roots were developing from the turn of the century. It is now supported globally by governments and non-governmental organisations, for profit and non-profit organisations, professional and community groups, women’s networks and the media. It is an opportunity to celebrate how far women have reached in terms of equality, and to initiate action to gain gender parity. The IWD 2021 campaign theme is #ChooseToChallenge with its upheld hand at shoulder level which challenges gender inequity.

Heswall members are marking the day and contributing to a media display by Tomorrow’s Women Wirral. At  the recent club meeting members showed their support by raising their hands in a screenshot.
