INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2020: EACH FOR EQUAL

The University of Zimbabwe joins the rest of the world in commemorating the International Women's Day. The theme for 2020 is "Each for Equal" (#EachforEqual) and seeks to promote the notion that "an equal world is an enabled world". The day serves as an opportunity to profile social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women as well as make a call for action in accelerating gender equality in the workplace, academic and home environment. The International Women's Day offers an opportunity to reflect 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. In this regard conscious efforts can be made to challenge gender based stereotypes, biases and inequalities. This ultimately offers the community with the opportunity to broaden perceptions and observe as well as celebrate women's achievements in all spheres of life.

_"Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world."_
