"International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It commemorates the movement for women's rights. March 8 was suggested by the 1910 International Socialist Woman's Conference to become an "International Woman's Day."
Happy International Women’s Day – what this day means to me…..
I am a Mother of two beautiful daughters with the World at their feet. It’s amazing how far us women have gone over the decades, but we are still not quite there. The #Metoo movement has done a lot most recently to put women equality into the forefront. The movement never really went away but the voices weren’t as strong. Now women are gaining their strength to speak up. Women still have odds to overcome. I would like to give a shout out to some really great things women have done. Kudos to these fabulous women that have opened doors for us now and into the future. These are just the tip of the iceberg of the great accomplishments and milestones for women.
