Today is International Women's Day.

Celebrated every year on March 8th, International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity, and for many it's an opportunity to align and promote relevant activity.

The theme for International Women's Day 2017 is #BeBoldForChange and people are being asked to play their part in helping to forge a better working world and a more gender inclusive world for all.

There are lots of ways you can get involved - from running a campaign or event to getting statements of support and sharing videos of your way to take bold action for gender parity.
