International Women's Day 2018

International Women's Day 2018 Artwork: Anisah...

International Women’s Day is a global day honoring the strength, resilience, and achievements of women and inspiring action to accelerate greater gender equity. Each year on March 8th, celebrate the lived experiences and contributions of those who tirelessly demand gender, racial, economic, and social justice for all women and girls.

At NRCDV, we celebrate International Women’s Day each year by commissioning or purchasing a piece of woman-made artwork that honors the struggles and successes of women around the world. This year, we are excited to highlight “Anisah: First Generation Latina Teen, Human & Civil Rights Spoken Word Artist, Muslim” by Perla Sofia González Marinel-Lo, and to release a podcast featuring Anisah González.

Today, we affirm our shared humanity—we recognize the beauty in our diversity and the dignity inherent in others. We recognize the power of sharing our stories with one another, and we honor and join in community with those who continually work to ignite transformative change. We stand in solidarity with our friends and allies around the globe as we work together to envision and create a world where justice, peace, hope, and freedom are present in the lives of all.

To our fellow advocates, activists, and social change makers, we deeply value your dedication, and wish you renewed energy, hope, and inspiration as we work alongside each other in the coming year.

Happy International Women’s Day!
