March 8 marks the opening day for the 2019 edition of South By Southwest. The same day is recognized globally as International Women's Day—a day that celebrates the achievements of women and acts as a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

The first International Women's Day (IWD) occurred in 1911 with more than one million people participating. In 2019, SXSW is continuing to play its part with the annual celebration. This year, in partnership with the European Union and UN Women, we’ll bring together the brightest, most creative and forward-thinking minds to celebrate.

Join us for an inspiring day of programming, art, music, and films created by, for, and about all who identify as female and of course, an unforgettable party!
