International Womens Day 2021

Monday 8th March 2021

Today, 8th March, marks International Women’s Day. Here we talk about the 2021 theme and celebrate the achievement of women in the RAF.

Choose to Challenge

The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge‘. It’s about challenging gender bias and inequity and celebrating women’s achievements.

A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
