International Women’s Day

Change comes from challenge — and that is the message organizers of International Women’s Day 2021 hope to trumpet Monday. 

“A challenged world is an alert world,” the International Women’s Day website says. “We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality.” 

Gender parity in government, workplaces, health care, sports and media coverage is achievable through individual change, organizers say. They hope this year’s theme for International Women’s Day — #ChooseToChallenge — will inspire individuals to challenge biases, question stereotypes and celebrate the achievements of women around the world.
