We are delighted to be helping promote Women for Women International’s upcoming campaign Join Me on the Bridge on March 8th, International Women’s Day. We could explain why it’s such a beautiful and symbolic way to create solidarity and a strengthened sense of sisterhood among women throughout the globe, but we thought this video tells the story in a much more inspiring way than we could!
Note that one of the very first Prosperity Candle entrepreneurs, Wafa’a, is the woman featured right around minute 2 in this video. Clearly she is not just a business leader, but a visionary advocate for women’s rights! What an inspiration.
Where will you be joining women on the bridge this International Women’s Day?

In the spirit of Women’s History Month, our thoughts are drawn to the many women who contribute to society in a myriad of ways while expecting nothing in return. They are hidden from view. Yet these women are transforming communities and making a positive difference in the world. They are unsung heroines.
March is about celebrating women… something we’re pretty excited about. There is so much to appreciate, so many barriers yet to topple, and so many amazing women to recognize for their accomplishments.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Every year we look forward to it, but here’s the thing. Ever since Eve Ensler started One Billion Rising as part of her V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls, we’ve felt conflicted about this holiday.
