To the women of Iran, whose revolution against patriarchic theocracy is not sufficiently seen or heard, you have all our respect. To the women of Ukraine, you are heroes, activists, mothers, daughters, sisters, and invaluable contributors to the good fight: we see you. All over the world, structural systems of inequality continue to undermine the roles that women play in society. At the current rate of progress, it will still take almost 300 years to reach full gender equality worldwide. Today is not a day to celebrate, today is a day for reflection and activism.
Join WIIS Brussels as we work to advance gender equality in Brussels. Together, we will make positive change.
We find power in our diversity, and International Women’s Day means something different for everyone. To highlight this diversity of thought, we have asked members of the Steering Committee of WIIS Brussels to share what the day means to them.
