Every year on March 8th, we celebrate International Women’s Day.

This is a day to celebrate the many achievements of women from all over the world, whether they be social, economical, cultural, or political.

Join Rock 95 on March 8th in honouring all the incredible women that raised us, taught us, helped shape us, fought for us, inspired us, and showed us the importance of gender equality, and the remaining work that still needs to be done.

2023 International Women’s Day Theme

The theme for this year is #EmbraceEquity, which highlights the difference between equity and equality. To establish an inclusive society where each person has an equal opportunity to succeed, it’s crucial for everyone to adopt equity and actively promote it in their daily lives.

The current campaign encourages collective activism and inspires individuals to challenge gender-based assumptions, confront discrimination, and strive for inclusivity. Together, we can work towards a world of equality, which starts by embracing the importance of equity.

Learn more about this year’s theme on the IWD website.
