International Women’s Day at Wheelfreedom - Jordan's Story
In celebration of International Women’s Day, we wanted to share the success of the women that make up our business at Wheelfreedom and the wider mobility industry.
Why do we celebrate International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is a yearly celebration that is celebrated world-wide, focusing on the achievements of women throughout the years, as well as raising awareness of gender equality. The day was first marked on the 28th of February in 1909 when the Socialist Party of America demonstrated their support of striking those working in tailoring garments. It has since been moved to the 8th of March to highlight women’s suffrage for wider causes across many cultures.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is #BreakTheBias. The campaign aims to encourage a world free from bias, stereotypes, and discrimination by acting inclusively of women, celebrating diversity and equality.
