International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. It marks a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
This year our theme is based on the incredible strength and power women have shown in the face of adversity. We recognize that there were tremendous challenges over the past year, especially for women, from dealing with COVID to broader issues of racial justice and human rights. But we remain hopeful about the future and the belief that together our community can create positive change throughout the world.
WTM teams from Balk, Kabul, Herat, and Kandahar have come together to organize the IWD Afghanistan 2021 Virtual Summit. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event will be online. The event will be broadcasted live on different channels.
