International Women’s Day 2021 #ChooseToChallenge

International Women’s Day – March 2021

Loughborough University and UNISON Loughborough are teaming up to celebrate International Women’s Days on March 8th – 12th March.


Each year International Women’s Day is celebrated across the globe. It is widely celebrated as an opportunity to draw attention to the struggle for women’s rights, to link these up with women’s struggles worldwide and to demonstrate international sisterly solidarity with working women everywhere.



A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.

To celebrate International Women’s Day Loughborough University will be hosting a variety of events.
