International Women's Day

On International Women’s Day, and every single day, Oxfam stands side-by-side with women in their fight for power over every aspect of their lives, in their quest to live free from violence, and in their drive to influence policies and institutions that affect their futures.

International Women's Day - March 8

International Women’s Day is a time to salute all women for their accomplishments as individuals and acknowledge the strides we have made as a group. It is also a moment to pledge to continue pushing for gender justice.

This year, we have chosen to honor and advocate for the rights of women who are fleeing violence, conflict and persecution--especially from Central America, from who there are walls to refuge, asylum and hope for themselves and their families.

We believe that we have a choice. We can either turn our backs on women and girls who are fleeing their homes, or we can empower them, and help them fight back. We choose the human option, to lift up the women who will change the world.

Empowered women change the world

Through our work in more than 90 countries, Oxfam helps women and girls overcome gender discrimination, realize their potential, and assume leadership roles in their communities. When you join us in celebrating International Women’s Day, you’re playing a vital role in these efforts.

Taking the stand against rape culture

In Liberia, Oxfam worked with a teenage rape survivor to bring her assailant to justice and find the peace to move on with her life through a program called FLOW that helps girls and women in conflict-riddled countries live free from violence.
