Hopefully this is not your first time hearing about this worldwide holiday.
International. Women’s. Day.
A day devoted entirely to the empowerment of women. A day that proves that women are valued for more than just their looks and the ability to be “pretty.” The day that all women come together to celebrate their imperfections, their ambitions, and their. achievements.
What you need to know: This day celebrates cultural, social, economic and political achievements of all women around the globe. It started in 1908, when the world experienced the largest unrest and critical debate amongst women. 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City demanding equal pay, fair work hours, and of course, the right to vote.
Be Bold: Be bold and strong in everything you do. Each year there is a different theme for this influential day. This year’s campaign theme is #BEBOLDFORCHANGE. You can log on and pledge solidarity with thousands of other women across the globe helping to create a more inclusive, gender equal, and efficient working world.
