4 Ways to Celebrate International Women’s Day

For over a century now, March 8th, has marked a day of celebration. International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate and advocate for women’s equality and rights. We as women have made incredible strides in society. With that being said, there is still a long way to go!

As a way to show other women just how talented and amazing they are, we have compiled a list of ways you can show your support and celebrate!

 

Support Women-Owned Businesses.

With how the world is today, many women have moved on from working a nine to five and have pursued their dreams in having their own business. Whether it is run from an office space in their home or in a warehouse, you can make a difference by buying just one item from a women-owned business.

 

Donate to a Charity  

Donating to a cause that is near and dear to other women is a great way to celebrate the day. There are many organizations that you can choose from that help in the fight of gender equality and women’s rights. Women for women, International, Equality Now, Women Alliance, and Rise Up, are just a few of the many charities you can donate to!

 

#BreakTheBias           

This years theme for IWD is #BreakTheBias. This theme is based around women collectively taking a stand to have a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. You can be part of the movement by taking a photo of yourself striking the pose that can be found on their website and posting to your social media or sharing with friends.

Acknowledge the Amazing Women in Your Life  

Whether it's your friend, grandmother, mother, sister, or daughter, sometimes a word of encouragement is all you need to lift their spirits and brighten their day. Let them know just how special they are to you. Tell them how much you care about them and believe in them. Set up a coffee date or even a time where you can call and catch up.
