What better way to spend your vacation than celebrating International Women’s Day in March in a city you’ve always wanted to explore. In 2020 there are over 400 Women’s Day events registered across the globe in the month of March, all designed to acknowledge the achievements of all women to this day, as well inspire and educate those who continue to work towards equality.

International Women’s Day falls on March 8th 2020, but events start before this, so be sure to carefully check the International Women’s Day website event list.  Search for a specific type of event that appeals, or simply choose the city you’d like to visit and see what’s been organised. Go solo or take some friends to join the celebrations wherever you land. The theme in 2020 is #EachforEqual (it even has a fun pose you can strike in your pics – check out the IWD site).
