International Women's Day Celebrates Women Everywhere (Part One of Two)

Everyone is buzzing with excitement because of the rapidly approaching weekend, but today isn't just another ordinary friday- it is also International Women's Day. 

Today is a day dedicated to remembering the influential women in our history and how their bravery and motivation has gotten us women where we are today. In addition to honoring these women we are encouraged to follow their example when forging ahead and creating our own milestones in gender equality

The message of this day deeply resonates with our own messages and beliefs at ONCEkids. We at ONCEkids celebrate the accomplishments women make everyday in their home and at work. Women everywhere are stepping out of the shadows to rise above as powerful employees and employers, challenging historical ideas and shifting societal norms. 

Excelling in both their careers and in their roles as mothers, modern women have achieved and are continuing to achieve what was once thought to be impossible- what we were once told was impossible. It is because of the women in history that were not phased by stereotypes and did not take no for an answer that we are where we are today.

 International Women's Day is a day dedicated to not only remembering the accomplishments of those women, but also reminding ourselves of our own accomplishments. And it is a day to not just remind ourselves of this, but also remind young girls that being a women is something to be celebrated and that their future is bright and their possibilities infinite. The United States has even designated the entire month of March as Women's History Month!
