IWD 2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge

A challenged world is an alert world.

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
