International Women’s DayÂ (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the firstâ âMarch 8â âIWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
ThisÂ yearâs campaign theme is #PressforProgress:
“With theÂ World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap ReportÂ findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – there has never been a more important time to keep motivated andÂ #PressforProgressâ¦Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parityâ¦Â A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.â – internationalwomensday.com.
We would like to use thisÂ opportunity to celebrate a list of empowering female authors whose books CPI have printed over the years:
“Our philosophy at CPI is to behave with integrity and treat everyone with the respect they deserve. I am very proud to work for a company that sees the person rather than their gender and know that CPI reap the benefits of this through a fair and progressive employment strategy.” – Tanya Dunbar, Managing Director for Trade Books.
