Each year since the early 1900s, the world has recognized March 8th as International Women’s Day, an opportunity to celebrate women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements while calling for global gender equality.

What is the state of global gender equality? How free are women around the world today? What role has government historically played in women’s oppression and liberation? How have market‐​driven innovations and the unprecedented economic growth of the last decades changed women’s lives? Are policies designed to promote gender equality working? What changes still need to happen?

This International Women’s Day, please join the Cato Institute for an interactive, online‐​only Facebook Live discussion of women’s liberty around the world and tweet your questions using #CatoDigital.
