#LifeHacks: Celebrating International Women's Day

About International Women's Day:

International Women's Day is celebrated annually on March 8th. During the month of March we also recognized Women's History Month.

International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action- whatever that looks like globally at a local level.But one thing for sure, International Women's Day has been occurring for well over a century and continue's to grow strength. 
Internationally, purple is the color for symbolizing women. Historically, the combination of purple, green and white to symbolize women's equality originated from the Women's Social and Political Union in the UK in 1908. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope.
A well known journalist explained "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."

Decide what you can do! What activity will you undertake? You can run and event, launch a project or initiative, deliver female-focused activity, activate a marketing campaign, develop resources, conduct research, make a video, run social media posts etc.
