March 8: International Women's Day
Celebrate International Women’s Day by committing to work together with the International Women's Convocation to provide women with a brighter future — a future where women have a voice, are equal participants in power structures and decision-making, and make a difference that benefits whole societies!
March 8 has been designated International Women's Day by the United Nations – and the day is recognized and celebrated in many countries around the world. The growing international women's movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women's rights and full participation in societies around the world.
As the International Women’s Convocation received special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council in July 2019, the organization is honored to be at the forefront of efforts to tackle the unfinished business of our time: empowering all women and girls and achieving gender equality.
We ask Unitarian * Universalist congregations to consider dedicating a Sunday offering or collection to the important work of the International Women’s Convocation on March 8 or in May around Mother’s Day.
Our yearly International Women's Day packet provides resources for Unitarian Universalist congregations to plan a worship service honoring International Women’s Day and supporting IWC in its mission to empower women and girls worldwide.
Next year's International Women's Day Resource Packet will be available in early January 2023. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your involvement and support!
