International Women’s Day
March 8th is the day to commemorate all of the talented, courageous and kind women of this world.
Like jewels in the rough, they’ve endured the earth’s adversities. They’ve remained our rocks and their colors shine truth, beauty and wisdom from the inside out. They are precious. They are destined to rise above ground.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th of every year and originated in New York City in 1910 by the Socialist Party of America in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union.
The movement widely spread to Europe promoting equal rights for women including suffrage. The holiday now takes place around the world and is an opportunity to pay respect to women’s economic, political and social achievements through history, and to demonstrate our sincere love and admiration for these incredible human beings who share our lives.
This day asks that we never forget and that we continue to educate our peers about the ongoing struggles and atrocities that women and young girls are enduring around the world. Green, purple and white are the official colors.
