The 2020 International Women's Day will focus on the theme, 'An equal world is an enabled world'.
The Day is celebrated annually on 8 March. It offers an opportunity to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
On the day after International Women's Day 2020, the 64th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women adopted a political declaration identifying both new and long-standing challenges to gender equality and women’s empowerment 25 years after the Fourth World Conference on Women. The consensus declaration underlines the importance of gender equality to progress on all 17 SDGs. More information on the CSW64 declaration can be found here.
