What exactly does International Women’s Day stand for?
In the early years, it was mainly a day of protests. And even last year, hundreds of thousands of Spanish women held a one-day strike. Spain was upside down!
This year, the aim is to show that the (unpaid) work of all women keeps the world turning. The slogan captures it perfectly: “If women stopped, the world would stop turning.” We can proudly announce that this year, Belgium is hosting its very first International Women’s Day. What an honour!
