The day was only recognised by the United Nations in 1975, but ever since it has created a theme each year for the celebration. The theme for International Women’s Day 2020 is #EachforEqual, recognising all of the actions we can take as individuals to challenge stereotypes, fight prejudice and celebrate women’s achievements. Last year, the theme was #BalanceForBetter, which aimed to encourage gender balance in boardrooms, in the media and in wealth as a way for economies to thrive.
