Celebrating International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8 and has existed since the very first gathering in 1911. The day belongs “to all groups collectively, everywhere”, regardless of location, group, or organization.
This year, the theme for IWD is to “Better the balance, better the world,” or #BetterTheBalance.
To celebrate the goal of a gender-balanced world, we want to share some of our favorite quotes from some of our favorite famous women, with the hopes that you will share them (with the hashtag!) so that we can pay tribute to some women who have helped make the world a better, more balanced place where women can achieve their goals.
