2022 International Women’s Day Poem

Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women’s equality.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

You too can join the movement, by posting a picture of yourself with your arms crossed on social media as a sign of solidarity (please see below) and using the hashtags #IWD2022 and #BreakTheBias.
