March 8th marks international Women's Day and there are tons of ways make a difference.
At a 1910 conference in Copenhagen for working women, the 100-plus attendees unanimously agreed to designate one day each year for women around the world to rally for equality—a unified, amplified call for change. The following March, the first International Women's Day was observed (IWD website). We've come a long way since and there is much to be proud of, but still more we can do.
Whether it's volunteering in your community or reaching out to a woman you admire, International Women's Day was created as a way to activate and campaign for equality. Here are some ideas of ways you can observe this special day and spread the celebrations throughout the month.
