International Women’s Day is held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. It is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is a day to reflect on those who have fought for the right to vote, for equal pay, for the recognition they deserve.
TPT aims to tell stories that matter, and we hope by highlighting some powerful women from across history, you will be inspired to take actions big and small for gender parity on this International Women’s Day.
