# International Women’s Day 2023 Runners from all over the country will run with WHITE RIBBON power stickers!
WHITE RIBBON is a universal symbol supporting the health and rights of all women.
JOICFP, a public interest incorporated foundation, has been developing the White Ribbon Movement across national borders so that all women can choose their own health and happy life on their own.
March begins with the “Women’s Health Week” advocated by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (March 1st to March 8th), and marathons for women such as the White Ribbon Run, the Nagoya Women’s Marathon, and the Shibuya/Omotesando Women’s Run. Tournaments and events are held all over Japan, and more than 35,000 women challenge the competition to face their own health and become stronger and better. We will run through Nagoya, Shibuya, and all over the country. It’s exactly the month when women take health actions for themselves. Focusing on this, JOICFP advocates this March as “White Ribbon Month” to take solidarity action for one’s own health and that of others. For the first time in history, these three competitions will be connected by power stickers designed with five #International Women’s Day 2023 WHITE RIBBON messages. Stick these power stickers on your chest, arms, and anywhere else you like, and everyone will make a movement!
There are 5 types of power stickers. The fun of collecting them at each tournament and event!

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: “There is an urgent need to ensure that all women and girls have access to the health services they need and to exercise their ‘sexual and
