Prevent men’s violence against women

International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8th all over the world.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter, celebrating the role everyone can play in creating a more gender-balanced and equal future.

Respect for women and gender equality has come a long way, but there’s still a lot more to achieve.

White Ribbon Australia is proud to be partnering with the Institute of Managers and Leaders for their International Women’s Day Great Debate 2019.

Attend a march

Get involved in International Women’s Day 2019 by heading along to a local march near you. We especially encourage men to go along and show their solidarity and support for the women in their lives, and women all over the world. With more men standing alongside women, we can create #BalanceForBetter and create a world of gender equality and respect.
