#EachForEqual

Posted on General March 1, 2020 by Mary George

March is a powerful month for Women around the globe! It marks Women’s History Month and as we have done the last few years, we want to honor the early leaders, change makers, and visionary women who have come before us. Take time this month to talk and reflect with your children about the accomplishments of these women and the impact they have had on our lives.

Celebrate #EachForEqual on International Women’s Day, Sunday, March 8th. “Each year, International Women’s Day events are held worldwide – global gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, fun runs, corporate events, concert performances, speaking events, online digital gatherings and more. Events are held by women’s networks, corporations, charities, educational institutions, government bodies, political parties, the media and further communities.”
