How to Celebrate International Women's Day
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women — while calling for gender equality.
Governments, women's organisations, corporations and charities honor the holiday around the world with arts performances, conferences, talks, networking events, marches, films and activities.
Whether you choose to venture outside or stay at home, this International Women's Day in order to not only honor all that we have accomplished, but to fight for what we still deserve, March — the 8th is a great way to empower women to stand up worldwide and mark the occasion in any way that they can.
If you are still not sure where to begin from, here are few ways to celebrate 8th of March and truly make an inspiring distinction.
Donate to Your Favorite Women’s Cause or Charity
There are so many causes and organizations out there which support women's rights and that are always in need of extra cash, and some even just food, clothing, or your time (there are lots of ways you can help).
International Women's Day is the perfect day to contact your local women’s shelter and find out how you can help or donate to a women’s non-profit like the #GirlsCount campaign where you can sponsor the education of girls in developing countries.
You can even connect by volunteering with a friend or banding together to make a group donation.
Give Something Special to the Women in Your Life
While we can’t agree more that the day itself is about so much more than exchanging presents, sending thoughtful messages or gifts to your mother, friend, relative, or any other woman who means the most to you is never a bad idea.
Sending cards to the favorite ladies in your life is an amazing way to support women, show your appreciation and respect, and plus who doesn’t love getting an unexpected card in the mail?
If you chose to go for a meaningful gift instead, think what this significant female of your choice would really appreciate to receive. Maybe cooking is her passion, and you can get her some cute kitchen accessories, or she recently started going to the gym and you know that she would really appreciate a pair of workout leggings.
Celebrate with the Women You Love
Treat yourself and the women you love this year for the International Women’s Day. It doesn’t have to be something spectacular, but taking the time to toast and appreciate the ladies in your life who inspire and empower you, is a pleasing activity and a gesture they'll remember for years to come. You will definitely make their day if you spoil them with a nice dinner, or throw together a ladies night and split a bottle of wine with your besties at home.
Practice a Little Self Care
Find a way to make yourself feel good! Indulge in a day’s worth of self care. Give yourself some special pampering, whether that means a little meditation, putting your black leggings on and sweat it out at a new fitness class, relaxing scented bath, an hour-long massage, or getting your hair and nails done with your girlfriends. Whatever helps you unwind your most invigorated self, take the time to enrich your day with it.
If you finish the day feeling better about yourself, it’s been a success.
