International Women's Day

By Daniel on 31 January, 2017

International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8th celebrates women’s achievements and gender equality across the world.

The potential for change lies in the hands of millions of women across the world. IWD is more important than ever as many progressive gains are now under threat. Inequality is everyone's problem to fix - because it's the only way to unlock the potential of women and girls.

Many British women still suffer from gender inequality in the workplace. Far too often, working women are disproportionately affected if they get pregnant, which can lead to stalled career opportunities and lower pay. If you can speak with an Expert about these issues, then you’re in a better position to counter discrimination.

As well as “structural” barriers such as the gender wage gap, British women also face “soft” barriers such as differential gender roles in the home. Many working women still undertake the lion’s share of washing, cooking and cleaning - even if they work full-time - than men.
