    Happy International Woman’s Day 2019 to all my absolutely fabulous women out there!

    It’s great that we get our own day dedicated to how amazing we are, right? But what exactly is International Woman’s Day all about, aside from the obvious?

    Well, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th each an every year, and the main center of interest of this glorious day is the significant movement for women’s rights. After the Socialist Party of the USA organized a Woman’s Day on February 28th way back in 1909 in New York, the International Socialist Woman’s Conference of 1910 made the bold suggestion that a “Woman’s Day” should be held annually. And the rest, as they say… is history!

    “To all the little girls who are watching, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”

    “When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit. So let’s keep going — let’s keep going until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves to have.”

    “Whether I am meant to or not, I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I’m well aware of, but that’s just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history—empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves.”
