Happy International Women’s Day

Did you know that March 8th is International Women’s Day? It’s an annual holiday with roots in the Women’s Suffrage Movement and is now celebrated worldwide.

International Women’s Day is a time to honor women and raise awareness about the unique obstacles they face around the world.

Air India and Air France are flying “100% female-operated” flights today to commemorate International Women’s Day. Air India says it’s flying 11 such flights, including on one of its ultra-long-haul routes between New Delhi and Toronto. How cool is that?

If you want to show your support of the day, the best thing you can do is educate yourself on the issues facing women today. Education is the first step in solving these problems. This year’s International Women’s Day celebration is focused on “Equal access to education, training, and science, and technology: Pathway to decent work for women” so that we can make sure women across the world have access to the training and technology necessary to be a part of the global economy.

So what color do you wear on International Women’s Day? PURPLE – not pink! I know, I was just as surprised.

The National Women’s Party suggests wearing purple on International Women’s Day since “Purple is the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause.” It is also the color of dignity and self-respect and signifies bipartisanship. Other people consider the color purple as a symbol of royalty, so wear purple on other days too, for all its positive symbolism!
