International Women’s Day has been celebrated on March 8 since around 1914, but its origins date back to as early as 1909. It is a day when we recognize women for their achievements without regard to any cultural, linguistic, or economic divisions. The history of International Women’s Day is rich with innovative thinkers and passionate women spearheading social change and dedication for equality. Across the Americas, Europe, and beyond, women’s unique impact on history and passion to have their voices heard has empowered world changers for hundreds of years. In honor of International Women’s Day, here are some ways to celebrate and support the women in your life.
Women Helping WomenIt’s important that we come together, taking the time to help other women achieve their goals. There are plenty of women in my own life I admire who have taken the time to provide encouragement and advice when I needed it most. Some that come to mind are my mother, my dance studio owner growing up, and my manager here at USANA’s Home Office. Sometimes, no one quite understands the struggles you’re having like a great girlfriend does. Supporting someone and becoming a mentor definitely isn’t confined to just women helping women. I also learning new perspectives from the men in my life.
