Strong, Brilliant Women Celebrate International Women’s Day this Sunday

womens day events on asembl

It’s WOMEN’S DAY week as we gear up for International Women’s Day on March 8th. It’s a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. A great time of year that appreciates women’s hard work and accomplishments. We might not have equal gender pay but we’re getting there.

Women are having more of a voice in the office and are getting paid for their hard work. It’s important to recognize this holiday because it reminds us of how far we’ve come and how successful women in the workplace are but also how much work remains to be done. It gives us hope for the future as we hopefully will close that gender equality gap for good.

If you’re all about the female empowering holiday, then that’s great because we’ve put together some events going on in the city for women’s day this Sunday, March 8th. Check them out below!
