For over a century, International Women’s Day has celebrated the social, cultural, political, and economic contributions and achievements of women. Recognized in 20 countries, the initiative has borne witness to a lot of victorious moments but has also confronted heartbreaking challenge and injustice. Looking ahead with bold confidence, the groups that make up the collective effort continue to work towards gender parity, social justice, equality for everyone. Those intimately involved with the movement are very aware that the responsibility for fighting for these rights doesn’t fall on the shoulders of one entity – be it a non-profit, a corporation, a social action committee, or a government. Rather, true advancements are made when all band together with others around the globe.
On March 8th, join the movement by posting your activities with the hashtag #BeBoldForChange.
