Celebrating International Women’s Day

The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights. Gloria Steinem, activist, journalist

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8th. It is the focal point in the movement for women’s rights and began February 28, 1909 in New York. This year’s theme is BalanceforBetter – building a gender balanced world. Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also a call to action for accelerating gender balance. Better balance makes for a better world. 

Affirmation: I look for ways to create gender balance in my world.

Coaching questions: How has/does gender imbalance affect you and your family? What will you do to help correct the imbalance? How will you educate yourself on this topic?
