We wish we could say we invented it (what an excellent idea), but IWD has occurred for well over a century. The first IWD gathering in 1911 was supported by over a million people and today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific. Just as the cause to have equality for all, IWD also belongs to us all and each of us has to take an active part. #IWD2022
We hope that the resources we have collected or created for you will help you to take your part in #BreakTheBias.
Together we can #BreakTheBias and forge women’s equality. A diverse, equitable, inclusive world, that is free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination and where difference is valued and celebrated. That’s what IWD has set for this year’s motto “Break the Bias”. Yes, the list is long but far from unreasonable.

Teach Your Children
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scouts has created an activity pack on gender and women’s rights for children. You can download it here. The Pack materials are aimed at children aged between 6 and 15+ years.
It’s about the power, fierceness and realness of women – and how different young women step up into leadership roles, learn about themselves, and make a positive difference in each other’s lives and their world.
