Held annually on March 8th, International Women's Day is a global day to celebrate women’s economic, political, and social advancements and highlight the steps that still need to be made to achieve gender equality.
It grows every year, as women around the world pause to reflect and make plans for change, often wearing purple to symbolize justice and dignity and green for hope.
