Why and How to Celebrate International Women's Day


International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on March 8. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. IWD is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy, and action. This year's theme is #equalforequal. It is a day to recognize that we are all parts of a whole. Our individual actions, conversations, behaviors, and mindsets can have an impact on our larger society so we need to make sure that we are making a difference. Collectively, we can make change happen. Collectively, we can each help to create a gender-equal world. The best way to celebrate is to have a conversation about what you can do to enact change in your own life. Then, gather together with your gals and talk about change or just vibe and have a little fun together.
Here are a few fun events happening around town on International Women's Day.
