International Women’s Day 2020 is on Sunday, March 8th. Activists in cities across the globe organize marches in support of local and global feminist issues.
Each year, there is a main theme for everyone to gather around. This year, it’s #EachforEqual—a reminder that our daily actions can help make a change, and a call for all of us to work towards gender equality in our communities, workplaces, and homes.
Clue is proud to support this goal, and help make others’ voices heard.
A short history of IWD
The first Women’s Day was celebrated on February 28th 1909 in New York City, inspired by the activist Theresa Serber Malkiel. Theresa Malkiel was a Russian-American suffragist and the first woman to rise from factory work to being a member of the Socialist party. She spoke out for immigrant women and established local suffrage clubs.
Since then, Women’s Days across the globe have been focal points of women’s rights activism—for women’s right to vote, for reproductive rights, for equal pay, for the right to hold public office, and for an end to violence against women.
