Celebrating Women in Words + Art

International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the economic, political, and social achievements of women past, present, and future. Today’s worldwide celebrations mark the 100 year anniversary of IWD, and includes events in more than 25 countries.

Part of those celebrations is the Global IWD Women’s Arts Initiative, showcasing the collective creative ability of women in two fantastic presentations:

100 Women, 100 Artworks

100 Women, 100 Stories

As is true whenever women gather, the stories told in words and art reach out across physical boundaries, cultural differences, and personal experiences to connect all of us in the celebration of our collective life journey.

Please take some time today to share in those experiences and celebrate the women in your corner of the universe.
