Stand with us this International Women's Day to #PressforProgress and share our e-card with colleagues, family and friends.

The Union is fully committed to a set of Gender Equality Challenge Principles that supports and champions equality for women and girls.

On the 8th March, the NASUWT joins campaigners across the globe to celebrate International Women's Day to draw attention to women’s continued campaign for equality. 

The day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the 20th century in North America and across Europe.

While International Women's Day is now largely aimed at inspiring women across the world and celebrating their achievements, its roots are in movements campaigning for better pay and voting rights.

The first IWD was held in 1911 where rapid expansion and turbulence in the industrialised world saw a booming population.
