International Women Day is celebrated to acknowledge the achievements of women in all spheres of life. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity in society and highlighting the role we can all play in helping to create an inclusive world.
This year, the campaign theme is ‘Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world’ alongside a social media campaign tagged #ChooseToChallenge to call out gender bias and inequality.
In commemoration of IWD2021, we walked the street of Abuja to hear from young Nigerians on challenges women face, and what they choose to challenge. Watch a thrilling conversation: https://youtu.be/H96dklCFKZI
