Women's Day (8 March)

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on 8 March, yearly. Thousands of events are held throughout the world both to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. In Palestine, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural, and political achievement.

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.

To mark this day, Birzeit University is pleased to host a program of activities. Every year on the 8th March, the university comes together to celebrate its women and their achievements. The university has often spearheaded efforts to recognize and celebrate women and girls who have strengthened our own campus and community.
