International Women’s Day – March 8th

International Women’s Day is coming up on March 8th. Wanna celebrate? Here are some easy and inexpensive ways…

1. Get educated about women’s issues around the globe by watching a documentary for free. “Half the Sky” is available on Netflix for instant download. It’s a collaboration between human rights journalist Nicholas Kristof and several American actresses who tour Asia and Africa to tell the story of the challenges facing women in the developing world. Here’s the trailer…

2. Sponsor a little girl through World Vision. For $35 a month you’ll give a little girl a better chance at a successful future. You’ll also get to write letters, send packages and learn what life is like for a kid somewhere around the world.

3. Give to the Strong Women, Strong World initiative. This is a project by Women of Vision to bring change to the 13 worst countries to be a woman or girl. Here is the video intro to the initiative…

4. Talk to your little girl (if you have one) about how lucky we are to live in a country that values education for women. If she’s old enough to get it, show her this cool video about how education for girls disrupts the cycle of poverty…

Most importantly, celebrate the women in YOUR life!
