International Women's Day
Women are often the drivers of change in Palestine and spearheads in the social, economic, cultural, and political development of its communities. To honor their achievements and to inspire future generations, Birzeit University’s family marks March 8 of every year as a tribute to Palestinian women.
The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) declared that gender equality and women’s empowerment are fundamental to achieve equal rights and dignity for all. The world must ensure inclusive and quality education for all women and promote lifelong learning.
