With more women standing up for themselves in 2017, this year's International Women's Day is much more than just a conversation amongst friends. After Trump was elected — despite his numerous horrendous acts and words against women — it was clear that March, which happens to be Women's History Month, would be more impactful than ever. What better way to do that than finding out how to support women around the world on International Women's Day — and acting on it?
As a woman of color, this year's International Women's Day means more to me than it has in previous year. Though I always try to show solidarity with my fellow sisters March 8, this year I feel that it's more important to speak up, step out, and find a way to support every woman out there.
In my opinion, there shouldn't be any reason why women aren't supporting one another on this day — and every day of the year. When women ban together, they are a force to be reckoned with. And International Women's Day is the perfect time to show that strength, perseverance, and tenacity.
So, if you're looking for a way to show your love and support to the women around the globe on March 8, here are a few things you can do.
