2018 INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY MARCH CLEVELAND: THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018 AT THE FREE STAMP AT WILLARD PARK OUTSIDE OF CLEVELAND CITY HALL IN COOPERATION WITH MARCHES THIS DAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE WORLD- 4:45PM. INFO TEL: (216) 659-0473
Speeches-4:45 pm March-5:45 pm
Keep the momentum going since the successful women's marches across the nation on January 20, 2018, particularly in Cleveland, a march that drew some 7,000 people to Public Square in downtown Cleveland
International Women's Day 2018 campaign theme:
With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away - there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.
And while we know that gender parity won't happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. Plus, there's indeed a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support.
So we can't be complacent. Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
International Women's Day is not country, group or organisation specific. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. So together, let's all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let's all Press for Progress.
Collectively we can all play a part
Collective action and shared responsibility for driving gender parity is what makes International Women's Day successful. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900's, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in 1911. International Women's Day belongs to all communities everywhere - governments, companies, charities, educational institutions, networks, associations, the media and more. Whether through a global conference, community gathering, classroom lesson or dinner table conversation - everyone can play a purposeful part in pressing for gender parity.
So make International Women's Day YOUR day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.
