Consider a future in which men and women are treated equally. A world without stereotypes, prejudice, or discrimination. A world that is fair, diverse, and welcoming. A world where differences are valued and celebrated. We must achieve women’s equality by working together.
Advocacy for women’s rights will be a year commitment. Nevertheless, on International Women’s Day, which is marked each year on March 8 around the world, this is even more important to speak up in support of women’s equality.
Each year on March 8, the world commemorates International Women’s Day. Whilst origins of Women’s Day may be traced back to early 1900s feminist movements throughout America and Europe, the day gained popularity after being approved by the United Nations in 1977.

The UN announced, In 1996, “Celebrating the past, planning for the future” as the Women’s Day theme. Since then, a theme has been assigned to commemorate the celebrations and lobbying work for gender equality. The UN’s motto for 2022 is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow,” which aims to honour women trying to make the world a better place.
However, the International Women’s Day site deviated from the UN’s topic and proclaimed “Break The Bias” as the subject for this year. The site outlines the theme’s values as follows: “A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated.”
Curiously, the “Wakanda Forever” sign from the 2018 film Black Panther is also being used to symbolize this topic. The symbol, which is formed by crossing one’s palms in front of one’s chest in an X configuration, has come to represent pride, excellence, and power.
