It’s International Women’s Day and in an attempt to bring awareness to the subject, I wanted to write a post highlighting ways to support women in your community and beyond. I want to note that while we are touching on this subject this morning, your support should push forward all year long. Today is a great conversation starter for people who might not have women’s issues top of mind. But please – let’s try not to forget once these 24 hours have passed. A movement only continues to have momentum as long as there are people behind it.

10 Ways You Can Support Women Today: International Women’s Day

  1. Purchase goods /services from a small business founded by a woman
  2. Visit Twitter and search for social good campaigns looking for RTs. For every RT, a company usually donates money to a cause.
  3. Educate your children about the matter.
  4. Research more about International Women’s Day. You can do a general search on Google or you could start here.
  5. Tell your story. Share your struggles and accomplishments online. Keep the conversation going.
  6. If you are in a place of power, use it. Call for inclusion.
  7. Recognize our downfalls as a society. Accept them. It’s ok. It’s hard to swallow. It’s OK. We have to own it before we can learn from it.
  8. Get involved in a local protest.
  9. Write letters to your congress representatives about inclusion.
  10. Be the change.
