International Women’s Day Resources

Each year on 8 March, International Women’s Day is marked all around the world. You may wonder:

What is International Women’s Day all about? Who started it? Is it still relevant in 2023? 

Well, for starters, International Women’s Day as we know it has origins back to 1908 when 15,000 women took to the streets of New York to protest for shorter hours, better pay and working conditions, as well as voting rights!

IWDA has pulled together key information in the form of user-friendly digital factsheets, social media graphics and printable posters.

From Leon Design: “The design reflects what is International Women’s Day, activism roots and global feminist movements to advance gender equality, and recognising that we still have a long way to go. We must speak up, step back and stand with, and move towards change.”
