ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty.
Our dedicated local staff are ending violence against women and girls and helping change lives, for good. We won’t stop until women and girls are out of danger, out of poverty and on track to create the future they want.
Why does International Women’s Day matter? Do we still need to celebrate it — and what about International Men’s Day? We explore the history and future of this important day in the women’s rights calendar.
