What is International Women's Day?

Held each year on March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness about women’s equality.

This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias. This is an important reminder that whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. It’s not enough to know that bias exists, action is needed to level the playing field.

CBM Australia is part of an international Christian development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places on earth. Creating more positive futures for vulnerable women and women and girls with disabilities is key to our work.
