What is the significance of the theme for IWD 2022?
Achieving gender equity worldwide is crucial to meeting development goals. We strive for a society free of racial bias, stereotypes, and discrimination, one that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Collectively we can all break the Bias.
What strategies should we implement to ensure the sustainable development of women?
No feminist, nor any organization, alone owes the story of women's struggle for equality, but rather the collective efforts of all those concerned with human rights. Make IWD your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women. Knowing that bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field through education, equality, and empowerment. If you educate a woman, you are educating a family. If you educate a family, you are educating a generation. An equal world is a better world.
