Happy International Women's Day! Thousands of events are taking place today across the world to celebrate women. In fact, International Women's Day is an official holiday in over fifteen countries such as China and Russia.
On the 100th anniversary of this important day we acknowledge the women who came before us to ensure that as women, we have a voice. And we acknowledge the inspirational women who walk beside us today; our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, friends and advocates who strive to create gender parity, equality, and make the world a better place.
What is your message to women around the world today and who are the women you would like to recognize? Below we've listed three things you can do today to celebrate IWD.
1# Connect with other women, join them on a bridge and attend an IWD event.
