Hope everyone had a nice, relaxing weekend!
This Wednesday (March 8th) is International Women’s Day, and this year’s celebration has taken on a whoooole new meaning. It’s 2017, but this day is more important than ever. Why do we still need to celebrate, you might ask?
Well, to start with, here are 9 times men were given credit for women’s historic accomplishments. ( & TBH, this happens in one or the other pretty much every day.)
And then there’s all these scary (but true) facts, including the fact that every 6 minutes in the US, a woman is raped.
But it’s not all sad news: get inspired this week by checking out these stories of 75 of the most influential women over the last 75 years.
And if you want to learn more about the “Day Without Women” protest and how you can get involved, here’s everything you need to know. (And if you can’t actually take work off, here’s some helpful advice about how you can still be involved.)
Hope everyone has a productive & empowering week!
