International Women's Day

International Women's Day 2015.

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.

Raising her Voice

From 2008-2013, the global Raising Her Voice programme, supported projects in 17 countries to enable over 1 million women to take part in, shape and monitor the decisions that most affect their lives. Although formal funding for RHV ended in March 2013, we're continuing to work on women's political rights and empowerment worldwide.
