5 Uplifting Ways to Celebrate International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day 2016. A day to center the power of women, as well as to take action against inequality. In conjunction with action, we can also celebrate women and femme folk in vital ways. Here are five things you can do to uplift yourself and others this March 8th.


 

1. Buy a fabulous vintage-inspired frock from ethical & empowering She Loves Dresses. Read designer Jenny Baquing’s story here.

2. Listen to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk, “We Should All Be Feminists.”

4. Read some poems. Start with Maya Angelou’s glorious “Phenomenal Woman.” And then peruse this great list from the Academy of American Poets.

5. Reach out to the women in your life and tell them how they’ve inspired you. Our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, friends, significant others, teachers, neighbors, mentors, heroines, advocates. Appreciate them. Thank them. Uplift them.
