Subject: Observance of International Women’s Day.

Dear Principal

🔺As you are aware that 8th March is globally observed as International Women’s Day (IWD) each year, to celebrate the achievements of women and mark a call to action for gender equality.

🔺This day also aims to draw attention to the issues faced by women and advocates for women emancipation.

🔺Education is a forerunner for empowering women.

🔺To reinforce the significance of the day, especially for the girls and also the boys in the school, impactful events/ programs may be organized in the week beginning on 1st March, 2023 in the Schools and culminating on International Women’s Day.

🔺For this, some suggested activities are as under:
🔹The topic of instructions in different subjects may be focused on gender equality and rights of women. For example, stories on women empowerment may be narrated in the language classes, where in Social Science classes, social issues regarding women and the eminent people who strived for equal rights for women may be discussed.
🔹Special morning assemblies themed on women empowerment may be organized, which may include talks on women achievers in different fields, role play, thought of the day, group song on women empowerment, award/recognition to the girls students who have performed well in different fields such as academics, sports, dance, music, arts, social service and other areas.
🔹Such local women may be identified who have succeeded despite their struggles and their interaction with school children may be organized. Talks by women professionals such as but not limited to those in armed forces, police, aircraft pilots, locomotive pilots, aerospace engineers, building & construction, scientist etc. may also be organized.
🔹The achievements of women sports-person throughout the year may be highlighted and girls should be encouraged to actively participate in sports.
🔹Women faculty members and staff may be felicitated for their significant contributions to school and society.
🔹Discussion at school level may be held with female students regarding any problems/issues being faced by them in or while commuting to school and corrective measures may be devised. Boys may also be encouraged to participate to bring in the concept of equality and mutual respect, from a young age.
🔹Create awareness on menstrual health and hygiene so that drop-out of girls at secondary/ senior secondary level may be reduced.
