The fight for gender equality continues in the Women's Revolution 2023

Updated: Mar 13, 2023

Every March 8th, International Women's Day is celebrated, a date that symbolizes the fight for equality, participation, and empowerment of women in all areas of society.


The 8M movement has grown stronger over time, with the participation of groups, associations, foundations, NGOs, a

and women in general who continue to fight to eradicate gender-based violence, the wage gap, and inequalities in all their forms.

The fight for gender equality is a topic that benefits society as a whole, and as long as effective equality is not achieved, International Women's Day will continue to be celebrated.


This day was established by the United Nations in 1975, although its celebration dates back much further. The chronology and background of 8M show us a constant struggle of over a hundred years of history in which fundamental rights such as the right to vote, the right to hold positions of responsibility in politics and society in general, the right to work and study, among others, have been demanded.

In Ecuador, women have fought for their rights for a long time, from pre-Columbian times to the present day. In 1924, the country's first feminist organization, the Ecuadorian Women's Center, was created, and in 1946, women obtained the right to vote. In addition, Ecuadorian culture values ​​the family highly, and women play a fundamental role in its care and maintenance.

The cultural diversity of Ecuador has allowed women from indigenous and Afro-descendant communities to transmit their traditions and beliefs, which has enriched Ecuadorian culture and allowed for the preservation of valuable cultural heritages.

Ecuadorian women have also demonstrated their creativity and entrepreneurial ability in various fields, which has contributed to the country's economic development and showcased the cultural and creative richness of Ecuadorian women.



Ecuadorian women's resilience and fighting spirit have been crucial in times of crisis, such as natural disasters and political crises. Their commitment to justice and equality has been key to overcoming these challenges and building a more just and prosperous country.

In the Women's Revolution 2023, the fight for gender equality continues, and it is important to recognize the progress made and the pending tasks. It is time to continue working together and in a coordinated manner to achieve effective equality in all areas of society.
