Infographic: Facebook celebrates Int’l Women’s Day with stats

South Africa may celebrate National Women’s Day on 8 August each year, but on 8 March the globe celebrates International Women’s Day.

“In 2017, International Women’s Day was the #1 most talked-about moment of the year,” Facebook wrote in a post.

“It was a moment that rallied the world around empowering women, and that was just the beginning of mounting energy for women’s movements that shows no signs of slowing down in 2018.”

Today, Facebook released some interesting stats about women on its social network and the impact International Women’s Day has had on the site.

According to the company, more than 40% of its monthly active groups on the network were created by women. Additionally, 43% of pages on the social network are owned by women, increasing by 21% since 2017. 70% of “all fundraisers were created by women” too.

For a more vivid look at the stats, with included examples from Facebook, have a look at its colourful infographic below.
