International Women’s Day recognizes social, economic and political accomplishments of women across the globe March 8.
For many, it’s a way to talk about modern gender parity issues, but the day dates back more than a century. In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City to demand voting and workers’ rights for women, and the first International Women’s Day was held in 1911.
Follow in their footsteps with events like International Women’s Day Advocacy Training. The workshop, held by the League of Women Voters and Fired Up Pinellas, teaches advocacy tools and ways to turn passion into action.
