Happy International Women's Day
“Access to resources, plus access to knowledge, leads to lasting change,” is the formula for Women for Women International, according to its founder Zainab Salbi.
Today, these sentiments are being echoed the world-over. March 8th is International Woman’s Day, an annual event recognized globally to applaud women’s achievements and to draw attention to persisting gender inequalities. According to InternationalWomensDay.com, this year’s theme is “Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures,” however, any organization or country can select their own themes to promote throughout the day.
