International Women’s Day 2018

“I raise up my voice – not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard. We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.”
– Malala Yousafzai, Pakistani activist and youngest Nobel Prize laureate

 

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

What is International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day is celebrated worldwide on March 8 to praise the accomplishments and advancements of women’s rights. From economic to professional to a woman’s personal livelihood, women have come a long way. It is also a call-to-action as women continue to push for equality and educate their communities on how to reach those goals.

The movement began in 1909 when women first protested on the streets asking for shorter hours and higher wages. The UN decided to make March 8th the official date in 1975. Today, woman use this day to raise their voices for further equality. (Don’t worry men. There is also an International Men’s Day, but we’ll get to that on Nov 19… 😉)

“If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.”
– Margaret Thatcher, first female prime minister of Britain

 

#PressForProgress

The theme for this years’s International Women’s Day is #PressForProgress.

With the numerous scandals that have popped up in the media, it seems only fitting to have a theme that to follow the strong #MeToo and #TimesUp movements that swept the press. The UN will also be commemorating with their own advocacy, #TimeIsUp as they hold movements for women in the US and elsewhere.

“There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
– Madeleine Albright, first woman to be US Secretary of State
