To follow our “6 Inspiring Ways to Celebrate International Women’s Day“ blog post, we wanted to share a similarly inspiring list of suggestions created by World Vision’s Women of Vision organizers. We are exhibiting this weekend at the Women of Vision National Conference this weekend and are already inspired by all the participants and women activists working for change for women and girls around the world. We’re only a few hours into the 3 day event and are so inspired by the aligned values that we have. As always, it’s wonderful to be amidst women who are creating change – by women and for women.
Please take a look at Women of Vision’s blog post: Seven ways to empower women and girls this International Women’s Day
Here is a quick snapshot of their suggestions. Be sure to visit their blog to see the specifics.
1. Save a woman’s life in child birth
2. Mentor a girl close to home
3. Use your voice to stop trafficking
4. Invest in a small business owner
5. Provide the ticket to education—clean water
6. Band together with like-minded women
7. Tell the women in your life that you care
How are you planning on celebrating international women’s day this year?
