This year's event will be virtual and hosted on Zoom. Registrants will receive the Zoom Meeting link via email in the days leading up to our event.

The official annual date of International Women's Day (IWD) is March 8, but when that falls on a weekday, we celebrate on the preceding Saturday with a PUBLIC event - a festival for women. It is a day when we take time to acknowledge the achievements that women have made, from our local Madison area to the global sphere including the State of Wisconsin and the US at large.

Why hold this event? All of us at AFRICaide and 4W strive to improve the lives or women and girls. So we are calling all women and girls to celebrate our day and to support one another.

The purpose of this event is to bring together women and girls from all backgrounds to celebrate the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We come together to reflect on how to bolster women's rights and decision-making power; to achieve equal pay and equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work; to end all forms of violence against women and girls; and to build health-care services that respond to women's needs within and beyond our various communities. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with relevant topics nationally and internationally.

Join us and invite your friends, family and co-workers to the eighth annual International Women’s Day organized by AFRICaide and the 4W (Women & Wellbeing in Wisconsin & the World) Initiative.
