Hello dear candidates in the MISS SL ♛ 2023 competition!
In our second runway challenge we’re traditionally looking at the International Women’s Day, which is observed on March 8th every year.
The International Women’s Day (IWD) has every year another theme to highlight the difficulties women globally have to overcome and struggle with. This year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity.
IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not specific to a country, a group or an organization, but it is for all women of all colors, beliefs and cultural backgrounds. This year’s theme goes even beyond that initial inclusiveness, equality and equity for all genders being highlighted.
For our second runway challenge we are asking you to look into the situation of the country you are representing and to tell us about the difficulties women and all genders face in terms of equality and equity. Which noteable efforts (if any) are being made by women and organisations in your country to improve equity for women and everyone?
While we are watching at the issues and efforts for equality and equity globally, we are welcoming the upcoming Spring season with colors, fabrics and… minimalism.
