Give it all you’ve got

International Women's Day Abu Dhabi

An equal world is an enabled world, consequently, International Women’s Day 2020 has adopted the theme #EachforEqual and here’s how you can take part in the campaign all year long…


Strike a pose. Put your arms out front and STRIKE THE #EachforEqual POSE to motivate others and make International Women’s Day YOUR day. Do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.

Amplify the movement via social media. Post your #IWD2020 message on social media with a photo of your “hands out” equal pose for a strong call-to-action for others to support #EachforEqual also.

Take action. This year’s theme is based on the premise of ‘collective individualism’, which means everyone must do their part in the fight for gender equality. Figure out how you will support the movement on International Women’s Day 2020 and beyond.
