Celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day

In March, we celebrate Women’s History Month, and March 8th in particular we celebrate International Women’s Day, where we all take a moment to appreciate trailblazing women and the vital role they have played in our history, while striving to make a more inclusive and equal world today.
