International Women’s Day globally recognizes women’s incredible achievements, raises awareness and encourages others to advocate for gender equality. It celebrates the magic of womanhood, it celebrates you!
This holiday dates back to the early 1900s when 15,000 women flooded the streets of New York City in hopes for better working conditions, pay and voting rights. From then on, the first-ever National Women’s Day was established in 1909 and has continued to spread to several different countries around the world, eventually leading to the International Women’s Day online portal created in 2001 — a vital resource and tool for educating and empowering all women.
This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias which focuses on creating a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination, and creating gender equality in workplaces, communities, schools and more.
Strong and amazing women, may we know them, may we be them and may we raise them! Happy International Women’s Day from the KoKo Adora Team.
