International Women's Day

Mar 7, 2017

March 8 is International Women’s Day, but the day is meant for more than treating women better and paying an extra compliment... although little things never hurt. International Women’s Day is meant for recognition of women around the world and everything women achieve, accomplish, and struggle with in their lives.

International Women’s Day started in 1910 at the International Conference of Working Women, but it was not first celebrated until 1911 at a rally for  women's rights to work, vote, and hold public office in 1911. Celebrating each year how far women have come highlights how much women are capable of, and how far there still is to go.

Here are a few ways to support International Women’s Day:

  1. Support a business that encourages women’s leadership | The Tory Burch Foundation empowers women entrepreneurs, Akola supports marginalized women, and Rallier supports girls’ education.

  2. Donate to a local women’s shelter | Donating to women in need helps women in your community feel a sense of gratitude and belonging. If you’re looking to go a different route with this, gather a group of women to volunteer together at the shelter.

  3. Thank the women in your life, and treat another woman to a massage or manicure to let her know you’re grateful for her.
