International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8th. The theme this year is #BalanceforBetter. International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.
In celebration of this day and #BalanceforBetter, we’re highlighting some podcasts that celebrate women, highlight important women’s and gender parity issues and empower us all!
