Today is International Women’s Day 2017

The International Women’s Day 2017 campaign theme: #BeBoldForChange

For International Women’s Day 2017, we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange. The IWD website is calling on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world – a more gender inclusive world.  They want women to submit their #BeBoldForChange action via the IWD website.

The Jan. 21 Women’s March organizers have called for an international women’s strike.  They have joined with  women’s groups in more than 30 countries in which they want women refrain from paid and unpaid labor.

International Women’s Day as a vehicle for change, is it possible?  See what the IWD website has to say:

Last year, organizations and individuals around the world supported the #PledgeForParity campaign and committed to help women and girls achieve their ambitions; challenge conscious and unconscious bias; call for gender-balanced leadership; value women and men’s contributions equally; and create inclusive flexible cultures. From awareness raising to concrete action, organizations rallied their people to pledge support to help forge gender parity on International Women’s Day (IWD) and beyond.
