With this blog post I am wishing you a very happy International Women’s Day that is celebrated globally on 8th of March. The 2019 campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter:
“The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world.
Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.
Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
Although the United Nations celebrated International Women’s Day only in 1975, the very first gathering powered by ahead of the curve pioneers of this now global movement took place already in 1911. Over one million men and womend attended rallies in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland demanding women’s rights to vote, work, hold public office and to attend school.
