We are pleased to see many campaigns celebrating Women’s History Month and March 8 International Women’s Day striving to address the effects of COVID-19 and positively impact gender inequality and economic disparities. We also pause this month to acknowledge and support March 24th as Women’s Equal Pay Day. This day symbolizes how far women must work into the year to earn what men did the previous year. Take a moment to learn more about how these dedicated months and days came to be and the ways nonprofits and corporate partners are making the most of the platform.
The month of March has long been a time to champion women. But those efforts often happen on separate tracks: recognizing the accomplishments of women in the United States as part of Women’s History Month; and celebrating women and girls as change makers around the world on March 8, International Women’s Day. This March the global poverty-fighting organization CARE is uniting those conversations through an action-packed, monthlong campaign called Make #March4Women.
