On March 8, the world marks International Women’s Day. This day celebrates women’s social, economic, cultural and political achievements while also reminding one another of the work still left to reach true gender parity.
Building off the extraordinary activism in response to the election of Donald Trump and the hateful acts his election inspired, International Women’s Day has chosen the theme Stop the hate, unite the fight, build the resistance!
