Each year, International Women's Day seeks to celebrate and advance the achievements of women around the world, and its 2022 theme, #BreakTheBias, is more than relevant on the Hologic WTA Tour.
In 1977, the United Nations proclaimed March 8 as a time to reflect on progress made for women's rights, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
About the theme choice for 2022, the International Women’s Day website reads, “Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field. Are you in? Will you actively call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping each time you see it?"
Each day, the Hologic WTA Tour seeks to #BreakTheBias, both on and off the court. See what players, past and present, and others had to say on social media on International Women's Day.
Feeling very grateful as I celebrate my birthday in beautiful Indian Wells on International Women’s Day. Thank you for making me feel loved with your special messages from all over the world. One year older and I can’t wait to see what the next 365 days bring 🙏❤️ pic.twitter.com/vuSkyWaJc4— Petra Kvitova (@Petra_Kvitova) March 8, 2022

Cuánto poder tiene esta frase! Hoy no es un día de celebración, sino de reflexión y de reinvindicaciones. Todavía las mujeres seguimos sufriendo situaciones de desigualdad y violencia solo por el hecho de ser mujeres. Unidas, somos más fuertes.#8M #DíaInternacionalDeLaMujer pic.twitter.com/yeG2A1FmZZ— Nadia Podoroska (@nadiapodoroska) March 8, 2022
