During Women’s History Month, let’s celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD)! IWD honors the advancement of the women’s rights movement while also serving as a reminder of the challenges we still face around gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
Here are seven things to do in honor of IWD:
- Celebrate the awesome women in your life
- Show your support on social media (#BreakTheBias)
- Involve everyone in the conversation and celebration, regardless of gender
