INSPIRING GLOBAL CHANGE
THROUGH WOMEN’S STORIES


Join us live on March 8 at 12:00 PM (CST) sharp to celebrate International Women’s Day. People from around the world will come together to learn about critical issues affecting women and girls through ConnectHER's very special and virtual event. Our event will showcase guest speakers as well as content created by young filmmakers from our ConnectHER Film Festival, an annual competition and scholarship program designed to share important stories through film and promote gender equality for women and girls everywhere.

Join our live first ever PitchFest, where participants between 13 and 30 years old compete for a chance to make a ConnectHER-commissioned film!

Watch three new powerful film montages from the ConnectHER Film Festival.

  • The New Image Makers: In an image-obsessed world, girls reclaim their self-worth and true beauty.
  • Girl Power: Meet women who are taking on tough challenges and working to achieve their dreams.
  • The Changemakers: Women around the world are fighting for their basic rights—and advancing justice for other women in the process.

We invite you to support International Women’s Day by becoming a featured ConnectHER Communication Partner & Sponsor. Some of our current featured partners include: Eloise DeJoria; Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed; Human Act, and WomenServe. We would be thrilled to have you join this incredible group!
