Government departments, business boardrooms, and media coverage are just of the essential areas to be highlighted by the campaign right now.

And by appreciating the achievements of the Women, creating awareness of bias and pointing out inequality, the campaign mentions, we can all share our part to bring more change.

A sign for change

International Women’s Day was first celebrated in 1975 by the United Nations. After two years, the UN and the member states declared 8 March as an official day for women’s rights and world peace. It’s now followed by all the world.

The campaign #EachForEqual is a sign of the movement, which is just not limited to 8 March, with activities throughout the year. The idea is to strengthen and protect collective action, arranging events, and talks that let us all share responsibility and get our share.

The campaign focuses on six key areas:

  • Encouraging women shaping tech innovation
  • Cheering equality for women athletes
  • Creating inclusive office places so women advance
  • Promoting women to get on their own terms
  • Enabling women for health education
  • ​Improving visibility for female creations

Journey toward equality

As the campaign suggests, creating equality in such areas and more is important to a “wealthier, healthier and more melodic” world.

Gender equality is very important as a benchmark of progress and has a straight connection on whether or not markets and communities thrive. As per the Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2020, Western Europe has taken the most extensive steps toward equality, which is right now at 76.7%, nearly followed by North America at 72.9%. South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa are at the lower end of the range, with equality assembling between 60.5% and 66.1%.
