It's important to recognize and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and to actively advocate for gender parity.  March is Women's History Month and March 8th is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating women's accomplishments and a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Here are some ways to celebrate woman every month of the year.

March is Women's History Month and March 8th is International Women's Day. During this time people come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality. With gatherings held as far back as 1911, International Women's Day has occurred for well over a century, and been a source of inspiration and support for women's causes throughout the year.

Action items:

  • Celebrate women's achievements

  • Raise awareness about women's equality

  • Lobby for accelerated gender parity

  • Fundraise for female-focused charities

 

How to celebrate with kids:

  • Learn about important women in history.

  • Share stories about women who have personally made a difference in your life.

  • Read books and watch movies together on this subject.

  • Learn about organizations that are actively making a difference in women's lives today and learn how you can support them.

  • Write a letter to a woman you admire.
