International Woman’s Day is a critical global holiday annually commemorated on March 8th as a tribute to women’s achievements, gender related abuse, reproductive rights, political rights and gender equality. Wearing purple on March 8th symbolizes loyalty to the cause, dignity and justice.
The holiday became official celebrated and recognized by the United Nations on March 8, 1857. Since 1996, the holiday became associated with a yearly theme beginning with Celebrating the Past, Planning for the Future.”
The theme for 2023’s IWD is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.” A main focus point for the holiday is providing equal internet access to women and men as the future job market is projected to be based on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) related professions.
The United Nations has reported that “259 million fewer women have access to the Internet than men, even though they account for nearly half the world’s population.” Helping women get into technology related jobs promotes gender equality and prepares women for the job market of the future.
