Last year around the world in 2018, groups everywhere made a firm #PressforProgress as they championed International Women's Day and took tangible action to help accelerate gender parity.
Many group got snapping and took lots of engaging photographs of their International Women's Day activity, and some even entered the IWD 2018 Best Practice Competition.
Below are some of the best images from the IWD 2018 Gallery. And remember to send us your 2019 #BalanceforBetter images.
International Women's Day (March 8) 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.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the
first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party
of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
Make IWD your day - everyday.
