International Women's Day

How you can get involved with International Women’s Day on 8 March at Herts

International Women’s Day is marked each year on 8 March. It is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women throughout history. The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. Whether deliberate or unconscious bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field.

Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

Celebrate women's achievements. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity.

Join a network - Herts Women's Student Network is open to all that self-define as women students and is a safe space for women to share experiences, discuss common issues like sexual harassment, period poverty, feeling safe on campus, and much more. The network is also a place to feel empowered to lead on campaigns that affect women within our community.
