Over the years, there have been many women – and men advocating for women – who have confronted the injustices of their day, advancing the rights and freedoms of the female population globally. Although some regions still lag behind in recognizing the dignity of women, the United States is joined by over 30 countries in officially celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8th. This observance represents a movement for equal human rights around the globe, and an opportunity to illuminate the struggles and triumphs of women everywhere.
International Women’s Day, now over a century old, is a social initiative that has grown in momentum as the world grows smaller and more connected. The event allows people everywhere the chance to be empowered and involved in the fight for social justice. This year’s theme is “Make It Happen”, referencing global gender parity; supporters will be utilizing the power of social media and the associated hash tag #PledgeForParity to increase awareness worldwide.
