Six empowering ways to celebrate International Women's Day 2023

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8. Here are six things you can do to mark the special day. A simple but thoughtful way to celebrate is to tell all of the important women in your life why you love and appreciate them. This can be done by text, email, phone call or even by sending them a card. Support local female-run businesses and challenge yourself by only shopping from them for the entire day. Don’t forget to include people that don’t fit into the gender stereotypes, as it’s just as important to celebrate them on March 8. Start a book club that focuses on learning more about women’s issues, equality and empowerment. Make a conscious decision to rethink your immediate reaction to celebrity gossip. Don’t always assume a female celebrity deserves to be treated or spoken about in that way. Create a playlist of your favorite female artists and make an effort to include small artists too.
