HappyInternational Women’s Day (IWD) to all the women everywhere. IWD is celebrated annually onMarch 8. It is a global day of celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women (everywhere).
The first IWD day occurred well over a century ago, with the first gathering noted in1911. International Women’s Dayis not country, group or organization specific – in fact, it belongs to all groups of women, collectively (everywhere).
Supporting and celebrating women’s rights in the United States and abroad is a year-round responsibility. However on this International Women’s Day, March 8, 2020, it’s even more important to take a stand for women’s equality.

I leave you with the following quote from Elizabeth Cady Stanton, “The best protection any woman can have is courage.” Let us embrace one another (women), let us embrace our differences (women), then and only then can we stand courageously as one (WOMEN).
