International Women’s Day: Celebrating the Women of Yeo & Yeo
International Women’s Day (IWD) is, first and foremost, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also an important day to raise awareness, forge progress, educate and inspire communities, and highlight the significance of gender equity.
Here are some ways to mark the day – whether with friends, families, colleagues, or the global community.
- Donate to female-focused charities: Donations can make a huge and long-lasting difference to the advancement of women and girls worldwide.
- Reach out to a friend: Send a text, email, or hand-written note to each of your female friends to let them know what you admire about them and how much you appreciate them.
- Spread the news: Share posts about IWD on social. Here are some ready-to-post resources direct from the IWD website.
- Wear purple: Show your support by wearing purple, one of this year’s campaign colors, signifying justice and dignity.
