Every year on March 8th, we commemorate the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women all over the world. On that day is also a day for making it more gender equal for all women. Global activism is centred on the celebration of women's accomplishments or advocating for equality.

Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:

  • celebrate women's achievements
  • raise awareness about women's equality
  • lobby for accelerated gender parity
  • fundraise for female-focused charities


What's the theme for International Women's Day?

The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2021 is 'Choose To Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change. So let's all #ChooseToChallenge.


What colors symbolize International Women's Day?

Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women's Day. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept. The colors originated from the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.


Who can support International Women's Day?

International Women's Day is not country, group, nor organization specific. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network, or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist, nor to any one organization, but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."  So make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.


What's does the MYSAC aim to achieve during this day?

Our founder (Kimberly Lee) was an inspiring young women entrepreneur, she wishes to empower other young women to break out of norm and start empowering themselves into their own entrepreneur journey. As for that MYSAC will be holding our own #ChooseToChallenge campaign. This year’s theme ‘Choose to Challenge’ focuses on individual responsibility and the ability to ‘call out’ gender bias and inequity in everyday situations.
