Introduction


International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also a day to raise awareness and take action for gender equality, women’s empowerment, and human rights. This year, the theme for IWD is “Inspire Inclusion”, which calls for creating a world where all women, regardless of their background, identity, or circumstance, feel valued, respected, and empowered to participate fully in all aspects of life.


Why is inclusion important for women?


Inclusion is the active process of creating a society where everyone feels that they belong, that they matter, and that they can contribute. Inclusion is not only a moral imperative, but also a strategic advantage. When women are included, they bring diverse perspectives, experiences, and skills that enrich the collective intelligence, creativity, and innovation of society. Inclusion also fosters a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment for women, which enhances their well-being, confidence, and agency.


However, despite the progress made in recent decades, women still face many forms of exclusion, discrimination, and violence in various spheres of life. According to the World Economic Forum, the global gender gap in economic participation and opportunity, education, health, and political empowerment is still at 31.4%, meaning that women have only 68.6% of the opportunities and outcomes that men have. Moreover, women are disproportionately affected by poverty, conflict, climate change, and pandemics, which exacerbate their vulnerability and marginalization.


How can we inspire inclusion for women?


Inspiring inclusion for women requires collective action and solidarity from all stakeholders, including governments, businesses, civil society, media, and individuals. Here are some ways that we can inspire inclusion for women in different domains:


- In the economic domain, we can inspire inclusion by promoting equal pay, closing the gender gap in labor force participation, supporting women entrepreneurs and innovators, and providing access to financial services and social protection for women.

- In the educational domain, we can inspire inclusion by ensuring universal access to quality education for girls and women, eliminating gender stereotypes and biases in curricula and teaching methods, and encouraging girls and women to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields and careers.

- In the health domain, we can inspire inclusion by providing comprehensive and affordable health care for women and girls, addressing the specific needs and rights of women and girls in sexual and reproductive health, and preventing and responding to gender-based violence and harmful practices.

- In the political domain, we can inspire inclusion by increasing the representation and participation of women in decision-making at all levels, supporting women leaders and activists, and advancing women’s rights and interests in peace and security processes.

- In the social and cultural domain, we can inspire inclusion by celebrating the diversity and achievements of women and girls, challenging gender norms and stereotypes that limit women’s potential, and fostering a culture of respect and dignity for all.
