Happy International Women’s Month, Mavens!

Women make up half of the world’s population. Yet, the reality is that the fight for gender equality is far from over. But, let’s not get down. We have come so far and it is time to honor women everywhere for their innumerable achievements, contributions, and efforts. Read below for five reasons you should celebrate International Women’s Day this year along with a few ideas on how to celebrate.

1. What does this day even mean?

International Women’s Day stands as a testament to the strength and resilience of women. It serves as a reminder of gender inequality and the many challenges women face across the world.  This holiday acts as a catalyst for female empowerment, encouraging women to live boldly and strive for success. It also accelerates gender parity and invigorates all genders to stand in solidarity with women. 

2. Fostering meaningful connections

On a day as special as this, creating a space that allows for open dialogue of shared experiences, intersectionality, and activism is crucial. Through sincere and honest conversations, you will have the ability to grow closer to your gal pals and connect through not only your similarities but also your differences. These discussions will help you further explore your relationships and build deeper, more genuine connections, which contribute to the larger movement for equality and overall positive change for women in the world. 

3. Breaking barriers 

For centuries, women have been overlooked and been made to feel small. Traditionally, women have a harder time than men in the workforce, which is why it’s important to have fellow females and allies in your life that boost your confidence and help you showcase your skills. This day provides validation and recognition for women and motivates them to stand tall and be proud of who they are. Even in a world that tries to disparage women, they can show their resilience and prove their worth. Women continually defy expectations, break down barriers, and rise above adversity.

4. Fueling a stronger support system

No one supports women better than women. International Women’s Day unites women from all over the globe and encourages them to uplift one another and recognize their accomplishments. Regardless of age, race, income, or background, all women are celebrated and supported. This creates a nurturing network where women feel comfortable being their authentic selves and inspire others to do the same. These support systems are a vital resource that provides guidance, mentorship, enrichment, and new opportunities for all.  

5. Fun, fun, fun

This day is a great way to spend quality time with the awesome ladies in your life while also giving you something to celebrate. Whether it’s getting brunch at your favorite local restaurant or hosting a wine-and-sip party, there is an endless amount of fun waiting for you. Gather up your girls and plan a joyful day of celebration. You deserve it.
