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.

Title: Building Self Confidence: The Power of Finding Your Voice
Paola Mathe grew up in a small town in Haiti. She was very shy and soft spoken, and was often told what she could or could not do based on her background and physical appearance. One day, she decided to take control and face her fears. “I realized little girls like me did not get the life they dreamt of or deserved if they didn’t learn to speak up and show up for themselves.”
