Wear Red For Women Thursday, March 8th


It began in 1910 when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding voting rights, equal pay, and better working conditions.  Women’s Day, on March 8th, is a celebration appreciating the political, social, economic, and scientific achievements made by women throughout history in America.  It is a day where all women are recognized for their accomplishments in their personal and professional lives.  All people, not just women, celebrate their ethnicity, culture, and characteristics that make them who they are.

On this day, people all over the world wear red to support women’s rights, rights that are not yet equal or respected.  There is still a huge wage gap and gender discrimination that makes it so the lives of all people are not fully equally.  Chelsea Clinton says, “We have so much work to do until every girl and every woman is protected, supported, and empowered.”  This day is not only to celebrate but to advocate for what is not yet equal.  

Wear red is a show of unity for all women around the world.
