“No country prospers without the engagement of women. We need women’s representation that reflects all women and girls in all their diversity and abilities…This is the only way we will get real societal change that incorporates women in decision-making as equals and benefits us all.”
-Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Women Executive Director

UN Women has centered this year’s Women’s Day around the theme, “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.” Through this theme, UN Women aims 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 and highlight the gaps that remain.”
Join us in honoring the accomplishments of women and girls everywhere, not just today, but all year long. In observance of Women’s History Month, the Library of Congress has put together a collection of events happening throughout the month of March. Learn more about their initiatives here.
“I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.”
