Women’s Day 2022: Theme

Women’s Day is celebrated every year around the world on March 8.

  • Theme for International Women’s Day, 2022 (IWD 2022) is ‘Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow’.
  • It attempts to recognise the “contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all”.
  • IWD 2022 campaign theme is ‘#BreakTheBias’.
  • It intends to promote a “gender equal world”, which is “free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination”. “A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive”, and where “difference is valued and celebrated”.
  • IWD has been celebrated for over a century now, but many people think of it purely as a feminist cause. Its roots, however, are found in the labour movement, wherein it was first organised in 1911 by the early 20th century Marxist from Germany Clara Zetkin.
  • Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women’s Day.
    • Purple signifies justice and dignity.
    • Green symbolizes hope.
    • White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.
