Celebrating International Women's Day
with a message from our Founder, Anna Muntada Villaneuva

Today, we stand proud and we celebrate.

Stand proud and celebrate the voices who have spoken out.

Stand proud and celebrate the people who have come together to form strong communities in support of one another.

Stand proud and celebrate the rise of new, inspirational leaders paving the way for others to be seen and heard.

Stand proud and celebrate knowing the strength of compassion, love and unity cannot be stopped.

We have so much to be proud of. We have so much to celebrate.
And we have so much further to go.

Our moment is now, unite and take action!
An equal world is an enabled world.

Greta Thunberg became the face of a global movement for climate change

We first saw and heard Greta on the steps of the Swedish Parliament in August 2018. Since then, she has addressed heads of state at the UN, met with the Pope and inspired 4 million people to join the global climate strike on September 20, 2019, in what was the largest climate demonstration in human history.

NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch complete first ever all-female spacewalk

Koch on the importance of conducting her mission and this spacewalk:
“In the past women haven’t always been at the table. It’s wonderful to be contributing to the space program at a time when all contributions are being accepted, when everyone has a role. That can lead in turn to increased chance for success. There are a lot of people who derive motivation from inspiring stories of people who look like them, and I think it’s an important story to tell.”

New South Wales decriminalised abortion

NSW overturned a 119-year-old law and passed a bill decriminalising abortion after a month of protests across Sydney held by pro-choice and anti-abortion activists. NSW was the last state in Australia to decriminalise the medical procedure.

Saudi Arabia Reviewed & Reformed Some Male Guardianship Laws

It became illegal for men to divorce their wives and not tell them, however women are still not allowed to file for a divorce without the permission of a male guardian. 

Women no longer need men’s permission to make decisions about their maternal health care and can now access information about their pregnancy and choose what kind of birth they want to have. 

Women over the age of 21 are now permitted to apply for a passport without a male guardian’s consent.
