FAWG IWD 2015 Events Thumb

International Women’s Day Week Events

To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), we have organised a few events where we hope to see you to celebrate the achievements, strength, wisdom, intelligence and inner beauty of women and girls in Fiji and around the world.

The 2015 IWD theme is ‘Make it Happen’. For growth of women-owned businesses. For greater awareness of women’s equality. For more women in senior leadership roles. For equal recognition of women in the arts. For increased financial independence of women. For more women in science, engineering, and technology. For fairer recognition of women in sport. Make it Happen!

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”– Gloria Steinem
