From Women’s eNews

March is Women’s History Month, first recognized in the United States in 1987, and March 8th is International’s Women’s Day. Events and recognition for International Women’s Day date back to 1911, in which we started celebrating the advancements and achievements of women in the social, economic, cultural, and political outlets.  A call to action is also recognized during this month to help accelerate gender parity. 
Even with the many advancements and achievements, women continue not to be seen or treated as equals. We still see discrimination and human rights violations in areas such as a woman’s right to choose about birth, in the acceptance of violence against women, in the workplace, in the education system, and within the criminal justice system.  There are many things you can do to help remedy the gap. Here are a few ideas you can start doing today! 

  • Speak up for women’s rights in both social and political settings and correct misinformation that you hear. Correcting misinformation goes a long way in educating those around us and influencing the political system. 
  • Get involved in local organizations or movements, or create your own.
  • Educate the upcoming generations about the importance of women’s rights and equality.  Raise children, all genders, to understand the importance of equality and our roles in the movement. 
  • Always continue to educate yourself.
  • Recognize and fight against gender-specific ideology and roles.
  • Encourage women to strive for their goals and dreams, even (and most importantly) when the seem impossible. 

World-renowned journalist and women’s rights activist, Gloria Steinem, once said, “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”
