International Women’s Day is held on March 8 each year to honour and celebrate the achievements of women and highlight challenges and the need for action to reach gender equality. The day has been commemorated for well over a century. This year’s international theme is #ChoosetoChallenge.
This year, Thursdays in Black Ambassadors have prepared special prayers to support women facing sexual abuse and violence and to highlight international solidarity to overcome gender-based violence. The prayers are available as separate cards for sharing on social media, as well as a full collection available from March 8.
