Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement. Tuesday, March 8 marks this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), where people across the globe come together to celebrate, reflect, advocate, and take action on women’s issues.

International Women’s Week

International Women’s Day is an annual worldwide celebration that honors women's achievements, marking March 8th as a time to uphold female success, face challenges head on, and focus greater attention on gender equality to mobilize all people to do their part.

Thousands of events are held across the world, with the hope of inspiring individuals to think globally, but act locally. During the week, there are a number of diverse campus and community activities where the University of Waterloo recognizes and celebrates the importance of this day.

Our campus had opportunities to lean in and get involved in activities like film screenings, interactive sports, and a feminist photo booth during the week of action put on by the Federation of Students service, The Women’s Centre.
