A Future for Women

We're flipping the script on Women's History Month.

This March, instead of looking back to the past, we are looking to the future. Fighting inequality means correcting power imbalances by putting women, girls, and gender-diverse individuals at the center of our work. That's we plan to do as we go forward. Our hope is that by 2030, the future will be more just and equal for women.

We’re asking members of the Oxfam community—and that includes you—what will women's equality look like in 2030?

Women's equality

All month long, we will be celebrating women changemakers, examining the pressing issues that drive inequality, such as conflict and climate change, and challenging our community to get involved to realize a more just and equal world for women in 2030. Come with us as we imagine #AFuture4Women.

International Women's Day

March 8 marks International Women’s Day (IWD), a day that acknowledges the strides women and gender-diverse people have made as a group and the accomplishments of individuals. It is also a moment to pledge to continue pushing for gender justice.

This International Women's Day, we made a Spotify playlist of the global women artists who inspire us.

Lights from heaven
