In today’s world women are rising up to demand more for their own lives. They are demanding more of a voice in politics, more protections in the workplace, striving for more educational opportunities, and more fulfilling relationships.
International Women’s Day is a global day of celebration that honors the achievements of women around the world.
Every year this day serves as a call to action for gender parity. Organizations like OneEighty celebrate women’s achievements and advocate for women’s policies.
The event was originally started in 1911 in nations like the United States, United Kingdom, Austria, Denmark, Switzerland, and Germany joined together to further the cause of women’s equality.
No one country or organization oversees International Women’s Day.
This day is for any individual, organization, or nation that respects human rights and wants to see them advanced further. The day is about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy, and action.
Women are a vibrant part of daily life and have made tremendous achievements throughout human history.
Take time this year to celebrate their achievements, wear purple, advocate for their causes, or merely reflect on the importance women have had in your life.
