Be bold for change: International Women’s Day

International Women's Day is on 8 March.

It's a cause with a long history - 2017 will mark the 106th anniversary - and a long-overdue desire: gender equality.

Celebrated since 1911, International Women's Day continues to provide a global focus for improving the economic, political and social futures of women.

The theme of this year's International Women's Day is #BeBoldForChange, and calls on men and women to help forge a better working world; a more inclusive, gender equal world.

The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. That’s clearly too long to wait and there are plenty of opportunities for you to help hasten the reality of gender parity.
