The theme for this International Women’s Day, 8 March, was “Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives”.
International Women's Day first began from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe. It is a day to show light on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
Global gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, fun runs, corporate events, concert performances, speaking events, online digital gatherings are observed globally to mark International Women's Day.
To mark this special day Texila American University Zambia celebrated this occasion by conducting events for the women staff at the campus.
