International Women’s Day takes place every year on March 8th, a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. 
It’s also a time to recognise the many gender inequalities that still exist today, and talk about what we can do to combat them. Imagine a gender equal world, free of stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, inclusive, and of course, a world of equality.
'Break The Bias' is the theme of this year, which has been chosen to highlight the individual responsibility we all bear to call out gender bias and equality. 
The first official International Women’s Day was held in 1911, celebrated on March in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Denmark. Now, this is celebrated in countries all around the world, and what better way to spend International Women’s Day than by joining in panel talks or protests with like-minded women?
Here's a list that highlights some of the best events happening in London.
