Voices of Empowerment: International Women’s Day 2024 & the Global Call to Action


International Women’s Day (IWD), celebrated annually on March 8th, stands as a global testament to the indomitable spirit, achievements, and contributions of women across every facet of society. More than just a day of recognition, IWD is a rallying call, urging the world to commit to a future of gender equality and empowerment.

From its origins in the early 20th century to the present day, the significance of IWD has evolved into a multifaceted commemoration. While acknowledging the strides made, it also underscores the pressing need to address existing challenges, such as gender-based violence and systemic discrimination.

In 2024, the theme, ‘Invest in women: Accelerate progress,’ takes center stage, emphasizing the critical role of investment in women for societal advancement. This theme serves as a global call to action, urging nations, communities, and individuals to prioritize and support initiatives that foster women’s empowerment, economic participation, and overall progress.

Inclusivity, equality, and opportunity lie at the heart of this celebration, inspiring collective efforts to create a world where every woman is afforded the respect, opportunities, and rights she deserves.

“International Women’s Day is a time for action, not just reflection. I envision homes where women are wholeheartedly supported. Let’s have open conversations and uplift the confidence of working moms and all women managing their work along with their families. Far too often, the absence of family encouragement leads to subtle but hurtful ‘micro-aggressions.’ It’s time to break this cycle of silent dismissal and create a world where every woman’s voice resonates with strength and significance.”

> Aanchal Goelthe Creative Head and Founder, Objectry 

“Work in tandem with your team. Our craftsmen have become quality check officers themselves and this has really helped us ensure perfection in each of our products. Understand the strengths of your team and capitalise on them!”
