International Women's Day is a global observance that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also raises awareness about the challenges women face globally in achieving gender parity. It encourages action to accelerate change towards gender equality through various means such as advocacy, fundraising, and volunteering.
International Women's Day has its roots in the early 20th century labor movement. The observance became globally recognized on March 8, 1975, when the United Nations started celebrating the day. In Nigeria, the day holds significant importance, and is often used as an opportunity to highlight specific regional issues that affect Nigerian women. Topics such as gender-based violence, female education, and political representation are frequently part of the discourse.
In Nigeria, International Women's Day is observed in numerous ways, with various activities designed to both celebrate and empower women. Traditional observances include rallies, conferences, and public talks aimed at raising awareness about the plight of women in the country. Also, social media campaigns mushroom, with hashtags like #PressforProgress and #BalanceforBetter becoming popular. Nigeria, along with the rest of the world, holds this observance annually on March 8.
