International Women's Day Hub

SSRN’s International Women’s Day Hub highlights early-stage research related to the pivotal role women play in our world. Tuesday, March 8th is International Women’s Day (IWD), an important day that recognizes the contributions of women, the value of gender equity, and actions needed to continue to accelerate gender parity. The 2022 theme is ‘Break the Bias’ because 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. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through quality knowledge and education. The research in this hub is curated from our Women's & Gender Studies Research Network (WGSRN). Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.

It is important to note that many of these papers are preprints and have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
