Throughout the month of March, and especially International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, USAID will celebrate its contributions to advance gender equality and women's empowerment around the world. The theme for 2018 is “Time is Now: Rural and Urban Activists Transforming Women’s Lives”.
Women’s empowerment is a core USAID development objective that is fundamental for the realization of human rights, and key to fulfilling the Administrator’s vision for USAID development outcomes.
This year, USAID is highlighting ways it transforms families, communities, and countries by economically empowering women and girls. Help promote International Women's Day 2018 with the offical USAID social media kit: #IWD2018 (Adobe Spark).
