International Women’s Day 2014

International Women’s Day 2014

Every year on 8 March, people come together for International Women’s Day. The event is an opportunity to focus on the struggles women face and celebrate the bravery of women confronting injustice around the world.

Concern Worldwide is committed to gender equality. International Women’s Day is an important time for us to remember women and girls whose lives are steeped in poverty and discrimination.


It’s also a chance to reflect on the important achievements in areas of gender equality, including advances in law, education and livelihoods which have changed how women live.
