International Women's Day
Thursday, March 8, 2018
Happy International Women's Day! Today we recognize the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women—today is about inspiration and change. This year's theme is #PressforProgress. Click here to learn more about the day and theme.
While we celebrate the great progress women in nursing have made, we also take the time to recognize that there is much more work to be done. According to the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report, gender parity is over 200 years away; therefore, "there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress" (International Women's Day, 2018).
Today we encourage you to take the time to appreciate the women who have made an impact on your life, no matter how big or small. Celebrate International Women's Day in a way that is most meaningful to you and the powerful, fearless, strong, amazing women in your life.
