Since 1908, when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights, women have fought for equality. Three years later, the first International #WomensDay was held. It remains a national holiday in dozens of countries.
March 8 is the day set aside each year for this important event. This year’s theme is #InspiringChange and encourages advocacy for women’s advancement everywhere in every way. Thousands of events are held worldwide to mark the date.
One of the world’s most outspoken activists for #womensrights today is Arianna Huffington.
She has spoken her truth in the realm of politics, literature, on the speaking circuit and the Internet, as the innovative leader and CEO of the online media giant, @HuffingtonPost. I had the pleasure of interviewing her for the current issue of @BellaNYCMag. Her advocacy for #success beyond money and power is quite admirable. Pick up your copy of #bellanycmag and read more.
