International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) takes place annually on March 8th. It’s a global day celebrating the achievements of women. As well as celebrating, the day also marks a call to action for accelerating progress towards gender equality.

IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first​ ​gathering in 1911. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. Here in Wales, WEN Wales are at the heart of celebrating International Women’s Day. We curate some events nationally reaching all four corners of Wales with inspiring debates, performances or exhibitions.
