Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021
Happy International Women’s Day 2021!
What is International Women’s Day?
IWD is a time for both men and women to band together in support of gender equality. People around the world take part in this initiative to help close the gap between genders.
Why is it important?
This movement is important because of the longstanding gender-inequality felt by females across cultures. By participating in the movement, both men and women can join the conversation and help solve various gender-related issues that exist globally.
Is there a colour dedicated to IWD?
Yes, the proposed colour to be worn in support of this movement is purple. By wearing purple, individuals can visually display their support of International Women’s Day.
Is there a specific theme for 2021?
Absolutely! Each year, International Women’s Day adopts a new theme. According to BBC, this year’s theme is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world.” The goal of this theme is to celebrate women in leadership and inspire lasting change.

Is it hard to join the movement?
This year, the movement has gone significantly more virtual. This has made it easier than ever to show support for IWD from the safety and security of your own home. For example, the #ChooseToChallenge theme across multiple social media platforms makes it easy for everyday people – like you – to the movement. By posting the tag, individuals can join the conversation and spread the word about National Women’s Day!
Downtown Kamloops has joined the movement by featuring the voices of female community members. This includes various photos and challenges posted by individuals who chose to join the movement.
