This year for International Women’s Day on 8th March 2023, Women’s Aid Dundalk are supporting the #EmbraceEquity campaign. We are calling on everyone to get involved and join us in supporting this key event.


All you need to do to get involved is – give yourself a hug, strike a pose and take a picture. Why a hug? To show that you’re committed to fully embracing equity.

Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA. It’s critical to understand the difference between equity and equality. The IWD 2023 campaign theme drives worldwide understanding why equal opportunities aren’t enough!


We would really appreciate your support. If you or your group wish to get involved, you can send us your picture(s) before the 8th March and we can post this on our social media platforms (with consent) or alternatively you can post your own picture and tag Women’s Aid Dundalk using the hashtags #EmbraceEquity #IWD2023.


Pictures can be sent to our email address or through messenger on our Facebook page or Instagram – Women’s Aid Dundalk
