According to International Women's Day organisers, this means that "women and men commit to calling out bias, smashing stereotypes, breaking inequality and rejecting discrimination".
The physical manifestation of the theme is for everyone to pose with arms crossed across the chest, palms flat.
International Women's Day, always celebrated robustly in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific, is a global day acknowledging the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
International Women's Day has been celebrate for more than a century, with the first gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, the day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
International Women's Day is not country, group or organisation specific.
