National Women's History Month

WHM theme 2014

This year’s theme, Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment, honors the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women. Against social convention and often legal restraints, women have created a legacy that expands the frontiers of possibility for generations to come. They have demonstrated their character, courage and commitment as mothers, educators, institution builders, business, labor, political and community leaders, relief workers, women religious, and CEOs. Their lives and their work inspire girls and women to achieve their full potential and encourage boys and men to respect the diversity and depth of women’s experience.

These role models along with countless others demonstrate the importance of writing women back into history.

International Women's Day

The official United Nations theme for International Women's Day 2014 is "Equality for women is progress for all."  Celebrated by women's rights activists across the world annually on March 8, International Women's Day (IWD) has been marked by the UN since 1975. Women's equality has made positive gains but the world is still unequal. International Women's Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.

 International Women's Day  is celebrated around the world on March 8. Events occur throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.  Organisations, governments, and women's groups may choose different themes each year to reflect global and local gender issues.
