United Nations observance of International Women’s Day 2022
The United Nations observance of International Women’s Day will be held virtually on 8 March, 10–11.30am UTC–5.
The theme for this year’s observance is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.
The year 2022 is pivotal for achieving gender equality in the context of climate change, and environmental and disaster risk reduction, which are some of the greatest global challenges of the twenty-first century. Without gender equality today, a sustainable future, and an equal future, remains beyond our reach.
This year’s IWD observance is in recognition and celebration of the women and girls who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation and response, and to honour their leadership and contribution towards a sustainable future.
IWD 2022 campaign theme: #BreakTheBias
This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias and asks the world to call out instances of bias against women in the workplace, at school and at home.
The campaign asks that people show their support for this year’s theme by posting selfies to social media posing with their arms crossed along with the hashtags #BreaktheBias and #IWD2022.
