International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8th, is a day when women the world over recognize, and celebrate, our achievements. The theme for IWD 2018 is #PushforProgress, a nod to the growing global movement of advocacy, activism, and support surrounding gender parity and sexism. Inspired by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the aim of the theme is to encourage people to continue the vocal fight for equality. IWD is a Day when we remember those who have blazed the trail before us, inside and outside our labour movement.
