Celebrating International Women-s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is an annual global event that celebrates the
achievements and contributions of women throughout history. It is also a reminder of the
ongoing struggles for gender equality.
International Women’s Day has its roots in the early labour and women’s rights movements.
The day officially emerged in the early 20th century as a response to the call for women’s
rights and suffrage. Over the years, it has evolved into a day of celebration and activism,
highlighting the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of women in
various fields. It’s a time to acknowledge the contributions of women who have paved the
way for future generations.
International Women’s Day has impacted the law over the years as it has allowed us to
progress as a society in relation to gender equality. This includes having legal protections
put in place against discrimination, workplace equality laws, domestic violence legislations,
healthcare rights and the enforcement of gender equality laws in relation to legal gaps.
Overall, International Women’s Day acts as a catalyst for discussions and actions within the
legal sphere, promoting a deeper understanding of the legal landscape surrounding gender
equality and inspiring efforts to strengthen and enforce these laws surrounding gender
