International Women’s Day is recognized and celebrated around the world across developed and developing countries alike. The first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911. There are ongoing international efforts in the fight for women’s rights and participation in political, social and economic processes. Victimization has perpetuated an injustice among women that still haunts cultures around the world on various levels and in a range of degrees.
The theme for this year’s celebration is “Inspiring Change.” Today there will be celebrations around the world to connect and celebrate the achievement of women. This is an ideal time to recognize and inspire change for women in areas that will be viable assets to our local, national and global communities.
I love this video produced by Google. It’s a snapshot of global diversity for women.
