What is the theme for International Women’s Day 2023?

IWD is celebrated on March 8 and the theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is yet to be confirmed.

For 2022, IWD has focused on #BreakTheBias, championing the achievements of women, taking action for equality and working for gender equality. Some of the pillars include creating workplaces designed for women to thrive, empowering women to make their own health choices, and elevating women’s successes in the creative and tech sectors.

Many brands support women’s IWD causes, but there are plenty that do so all year round – here are a few:
