More Than Just a Day

Women have been leveling the playing field since the early 1900s, and there ain’t no stopping us now! Today isn’t only a day to celebrate and honor women’s achievements, it’s also a day to acknowledge the progress we’ve made and call for changes that prevent women from an equal playing field worldwide.
