International Women’s Day

8 March 2020


International Women’s Day, celebrated globally on 8 March, is dedicated to reflecting on the achievements of ordinary women who have made an extraordinary impact in their countries and communities, and to celebrate the contributions of women all around the world. The theme for this year's International Women's Day is “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”.

In Nepal, UNFPA is working with the federal, provincial and local governments, sister UN agencies, development partners, civil society, faith-based organizations, women's groups, and young people to expand possibilities for women and girls to lead healthy and productive lives. In addition to promoting women's health care in particular sexual and reproductive health, UNFPA advocates for gender equality and ending violence against women and girls and harmful practices at all levels. UNFPA also spreads messages about gender equality in a variety of settings, including humanitarian crises.  

Every day, women and girls are driving change and progress around the world. International Women’s Day is an opportunity for all of us to take stock, celebrate their accomplishments and to look ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities for future generations of women.
