This year’s International Women’s Day’s is celebrated under the theme “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress”, with a focus on the goal of greater economic inclusion for women and girls.

To shed light on the issue of the care economy and its disproportionate impact on women and girls in the Arab region, and to advocate for transformative care policies, ESCWA is hosting an online information session for journalists from across the Arab region on the care economy and the importance of International Women’s Day. Journalists are invited to join ESCWA and the international community in raising awareness on unpaid care labour, and its effects on the economic inclusion of women and girls in the Arab region.
