On this year’s International Women’s Day, the FIVB has reiterated its commitment to ensuring volleyball continues to lead the way in championing gender equality. Celebrated annually on 8 March, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. As a gender equal sport by nature, volleyball has a key role to play in creating female role models and promoting gender equality both on and off the court.
