Happy International Women’s Day: #BeBoldForChange

Happy International Women’s Day, everyone!

Please check out the official International Women’s Day website: The theme for this year’s observance is #BeBoldForChange.

Check out this report in the New York Times about IWD events that are happening across the world.

And check out the Wikipedia entry for background on the history of the observance and its origins.

A lot of people in the United States don’t realize that International Women’s Day originated in America. For generations of Italians and Europeans, the observance has represented a day for reflecting on the rights and roles of women in the work place. It’s great to see the observance gain more prominence in America as well.
