Each year, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women whilst focusing world attention on areas requiring further action. 

This year’s theme is Inspiring Change, and is encouraging advocacy for women’s advancement in each area of society. It calls for challenging the status quo for women’s equality and vigilance inspiring positive change. Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911, and every year, thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

This year, one of our Founders, Laura, is taking part in an International Women’s Day event in South Wales, talking about Women In Web. Check back on Tuesday to read about the day, and check out her tweets from the day by following us on Twitter.

We’ve spoken to a variety of prominent women and have asked them which women inspire them and why. Check out their choices below!
