International Women’s Day 2019

Every year, International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8th. The last few years have arguably been some of the most tumultuous and empowering times for women in recent history, as we grapple with extreme challenges for women’s rights, and celebrate huge strides in women’s achievements.

Given these dramatic changes, perhaps it’s not surprising that this year’s theme is “#Balance for Better.” According to the International Women’s Day site, this theme’s focus is on creating a more gender-balanced world, a greater awareness of discrimination, and a celebration of women’s achievements.

​Here are some articles and a video that highlight history, change, and action this year on International Women’s Day:
