International Women's Day

For more than 100 years, International Women's Day — celebrated on March 8 — has highlighted the achievements of women while also looking to future possibilities. LWR celebrates International Women's Day through events around the country to inspire others to join us in fighting poverty and injustice.

LWR lifts up the strength, resilience, and potential of women throughout its work. Here are the stories of three inspiring women:

INDIA

Panwa
Meet Mina

EL SALVADOR

Hawa
Meet Maria

Through its Learning for Gender Integration (LGI) Initiative, LWR is integrating gender into its work to address inequality around the world and ensure that men and women have equal opportunities to benefit from LWR's work. Learn More.

If women had the same access to productive resources as men, farm yields would increase by 20 to 30 percent, reducing the number of hungry people by 12 to 17 percent (U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization).
