Officially, International Women’s Day 2018 is on March 8, and celebrates the social, economical, cultural and political successes of women. This year, we would like to encourage women around the world to keep believing in themselves.
Also, if you want to support or simply spread the word, there are two easy ways:
1.) wear red because it symbolizes the “revolutionary love and sacrifice” women have made throughout history or
2.) call all of the great women in your life and tell them how incredible they are.
There are other ways to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Here we give you some ideas:
Watch, read & listen.
Watch.- “Girl Rising” is a documentary highlighting the global campaign for girls’ education.
Read.- “I Am Malala” is Malala Yousafzai’s inspirational biography about the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban.
Listen.- The Girl Effect organization speaks to hundreds of girls living in poverty across the world. They build youth brands and mobile platforms to empower girls to change their lives.
Join a march.

Learn the history of International Women’s Day and how we arrived to this.
Take the day off, if possible.
On this day, there is a nationwide strike and women are encouraged to take the day off, so if you’re able to do it, consider skipping work to promote International Women’s Day.
