Celebrating International Women’s Day at YDMH
On March 2nd 2021 (held earlier due to the national day falling on a PH) an event was held to celebrate International Women’s day within the hospital grounds.
The event centered around the annual theme for the event – Choose to Challenge – which encourages all to support and encourage gender equality.
The day was also about celebrating women’s achievements and increasing visibility – taking the time to acknowledge success, accomplishments, while calling out inequality or bias when its seen, which is key.
Alongside striving for a state of equal access to rights or opportunities which is unaffected by gender as well as raising awareness against bias.
