Ways To Celebrate International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights and equality. In places like Berlin, Germany it’s now even celebrated as a public holiday. Right now is a great and important time in history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world. As the world heads toward International Women’s Day 2019 we offer ways you can celebrate women this year. The theme for 2019 is #BalanceforBetter which is meant as a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. How will you help make a difference this year?

Donate to a Local Women’s Refuge – These community resources are key to helping victims of physical or sexual violence and assaults.

“Maybe we should follow

The footsteps of a girl.

The woman of tomorrow,

Let’s fight for a better world.”
