International Women’s Day (IDW) is this Sunday, March 8th! Are you ready to celebrate the women in your life?
Did you know the first IWD gathering happened in 1911 with over a million people? This would have been well before many countries allowed certain women to vote, only New Zealand and Finland had introduced legislation allowing women to vote before then. [Read: When women got the right to vote and Women of color were cut out of the suffragist story]
IWD is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality, which hopefully will continue throughout the year.
In honour of women around the world, I wanted to highlight female-run companies who give back other women – whether that is by donating proceeds or showcasing fantastic women you should know.
