It is a day in which we celebrate women’s achievements and also raise awareness for continued equality for women worldwide.
The official theme for 2015 is “Make It Happen”
The United Nation’s theme for International Women’s day is “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”
I feel that as a woman “we” have achieved a lot especially in the western world yet I always say there is room for improvement, especially when we look at women and girls around the world. Join me today in this special celebration. Become aware and help raise awareness. There is still so much more to be accomplished. I have included various links below to sites you may find useful.
In celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the new “Let Girls Learn” initiative that will be a collaborative effort between the Peace Corps and worldwide Girl Scouts organization.

I leave you with this quote from Malala Yousafzai:
I speak not for myself but for those without voice…those who have fought for their rights…their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated.
