International Women’s Day 2021

International Women’s Day 2021

Today is international women’s day and we are celebrating it by highlighting some of the women that inspire us the most and who #choosetochallenge. Since we think this is one of the most important days to mark, we have decided to extend the celebration of women and we’ll be posting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday on social media, so stay tuned!

Normally a lot of us at HU would be out marching for equality during this day but this year we are planning on marking the day digitally with all the amazing events that are happening globally and of course locally in Sweden. Therefore we have chosen to share some of the amazing events that are happening here with you, so that you can celebrate the day the way you want to.
