International Women’s Day is March 8th
Sunday, March 8th is International Women’s Day. The official United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2015 is “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”
International Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, is a day to honor and celebrate the achievements of women from around the world. With efforts dating back as early as 1908, the occasion is an official holiday in more than two dozen countries.
It is a time to recognize the amazingly influential women throughout history and today — from business to politics to athletics to philanthropy to celebrity.
And it is a time to celebrate the amazing women we interact with on a daily basis and to express respect, appreciation and love.
Around the world, many people give flowers and other small gifts to their mothers, wives, grandmothers and daughters, as well as coworkers, teachers and friends in recognition of Women’s Day. In the United States, the observance is growing with more than 260 events held nationwide in 2013.
Do you have a mentor or strong woman in your life? Thank them, celebrate them or remember them…and send them flowers!
