Events will take place around the globe to mark International Women’s Day this coming Wednesday, March 8th. This year, the theme is “Be Bold for Change”.

Irishwoman Aisling Walsh wrote for Irish Times Abroad this week about why she will be marching to Repeal the Eighth in Guatemala City. We want to hear from more readers overseas. Why do you think International Women’s Day is important? Will you be attending a march or gathering, or marking it in your own way? What events are taking place where you live? Will you be advocating for particular rights this year, specific to the country where you live, to Ireland, or on an international scale?

Email your thoughts and plans (photos optional) to abroad@irishtimes.com. A selection of responses will be published on irishtimes.com. Thank you.

A list of international events can be found at internationalwomensday.com/Events
