Happy International Women’s Day!

ImageToday is International Women’s Day! My favorite day! When addressing the United Nations on Friday, Hilary Clinton said that gender equality is the “great unfinished business of the 21st century” and that “no country in the world, including my own, has achieved full participation.” I could not agree more! There is no way the world can develop when half of the population is not given the same rights and opportunities as the other half. Today I remind you to consider the grave inequalities that keep women around the world from marrying who they want, living free from violence, getting an education, and earning their own money. Consider what you can do to contagiously promote equality. But I also remind you to pay tribute to the important women in your life. I cannot imagine the woman I would be if it weren’t for my strong grandmas, my beautiful mother, my role model of a sister, or my inspiring friends.
