International Women's Day 2016

Each year, on 8th March, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women and, as usual, your Libraries will be supporting and promoting this event and its significance.

The campaign theme for IWD 2016 is #PledgeForParity, which is designed to raise awareness of and seeks to address the continuing gap in gender parity, predicted by the World Economic Forum not to be closed entirely until 2133 due to a slowdown in the pace of progress.

More information is available from the International Women’s Day website – please pay a visit and, in the interests of equality, contribute by making your pledge for parity.
