International Women’s Day is an annual celebration of the spirit and accomplishments of women around the globe. The event has been held for over 100 years, meaning that it has seen some pretty amazing history unfolding, including the women’s right to vote in 1920. There have been challenges and successes, and there is still much work to be done. As a worldwide initiative, Women’s Day recognizes that the treatment of women can be vastly different from country to country, and therefore organizers encourage women and men everywhere to come together in solidarity for the rights and equality of all women.
Strong Flowers: The protea flower is representative of strength and courage, making it a great choice for a Women’s Day arrangement!
With organized events in 20 countries – and 33 U.S.cities – the initiative has truly become a global force. From a fun run in Brisbane to Tech Talks in Toronto; from a Gala Luncheon in Hong Kong to a Career Fest in Nottingham – there are events taking place across the spectrum. There will also be opportunities to join thousands of other driven women in online digital gatherings if getting an event is not possible. These are great opportunities to network with other like-minded individuals. No matter how you choose to participate, join the global community on social media as they tell the world how they can #BeBoldForChange.
