International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The UN Women campaign theme for International Women's Day 2021 is 'Choose To Challenge' that calls for challenging and calling out gender biases and inequalities.
This International Women’s day, Femme First Foundation will be celebrating Women’s Day on the theme of #PaveThePath for women’s leadership. Through the past year, amidst a global pandemic, we have seen the paramount work done by women leaders across the world. Though women can inspire legacies of change, they are vastly under-represented in decision-making in politics, businesses, and communities. We want to see/hear your perspective about women’s collective leadership, how women leaders pave the path for other women and girls by breaking glass ceilings and pushing boundaries.
