Comments Off on March 8 Is International Women’s Day

Women International Women’s Day Is March 8! Since 1908, International Women’s Day has been a day to recognize the achievements of women around the world regardless of nationality, ethnic background, culture, economic status or political beliefs.

To honor this day, Women for Women International offices around the world hold events ranging from quiet and reflective meetings to loud and festive celebrations.

In Baghdad, women have rallied at the capitol for equal treatment… In Afghanistan you’ll find women praying, holding poetry readings and demonstrating martial arts to show empowerment. In the DR Congo, women hold parades and protests against unpunished sexual assaults… In Kosovo the women are treated to flowers and free food. And here in the US, people across the country are hosting a variety of events in honor of International Women’s Day.

This year, Women for Women International is creating a bridge between the women they serve in the field and the women who support them. You can get involved by hosting house parties, holding open dialogues about violence against women, organizing a Run for Congo Women, hosting an art exhibit, etc.

You can also send them stories about your own celebration and they’ll share it with the Women for Women International community.
