Monday 8 March 2021 is International Women’s Day!
The 2021 campaign is focused on challenge and change, #ChooseToChallenge.
The premise is that a challenged world, is an alert world.
As individuals, of all gender identities, we are responsible for our actions and thoughts. You have the power and the choice to challenge and speak up. It is when things are challenged, that there is a change. There is still a lot of work to be done to create a gender-equal world, but collectively we can make a change.
So, I challenge you to take a photo of yourself in the #ChooseToChallenge pose.
Will you actively call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping each time you see it? Will you choose to challenge?
You can submit your #ChooseToChallenge pose on the IWD website and they will be sharing them on their platforms in the lead up to International Women’s Day on March 8th.
All gender identities are welcome and encouraged.
For teachers, tutors and educators the International Women’s Day downloadable resources can be found here.
Remember that when you #ChooseToChallenge it is not just on International Women’s Day or during the month of March. You #ChooseToChallenge for the year!
Be kind to one another!
