Celebrated each year on 8 March, International Women's Day is a day to get inspired, invigorated and to raise the visibility of the work of women's rights organisations around the world.
The theme this year, Make it Happen, is encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.
In the week leading up to International Women's Day, we'll be collecting all of our related blogs and resources here, including a map with information about events taking place around the world.

It is testament to the fact that a woman's strength comes in all forms.
