I needed to do some digging to see what information I could share with you and I thought these three questions were a good start to help you learn more. You can find more information if you visit www.internationalwomensday.com
But before I share a bit more about this day, I want you to think about one woman that deserves celebration. Who comes to mind? Is it your mother, wife, friend, sister, grandmother? Seeing as this year’s theme is challenging people to make a change, I then challenge you to find one woman that you can celebrate in your life on March 8th. Send flowers, drop a coffee, show that special someone how much you value their worth. Okay so here are a few important questions to help you learn more:
