4 Ways to #PressForProgress on International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

I am all for celebrating women each and every day of the year, but having an official holiday to do so obviously makes my feminist heart happy.

International Women’s Day was officially adopted by the United Nations in 1975, but was first celebrated as early as 1909 in New York. (Learn more here.)

International Women’s Day is, of course, meant to be a day of celebration, but it’s also meant to be a day of activism. This year’s theme is #PressForProgress, calling for us all to motivate and unite our friends, colleagues, and communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report indicates that gender equality is over 200 years away! So we’ve got work to do.

Here are 4 ways you can #PressForProgress this International Women’s Day.
