International Women's Day is celebrated each year on March 8th.
Theme: International Women’s Day: “#BreakTheBias. Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow recognizes and celebrates the contribution of women and girls around the world who are working to change the climate of gender equality and build a sustainable future.
Breaking stereotypes, building self esteem, opening doors to a life of possibilities starts with our youth.
Thank you Grace Community Birth Center for your partnership and hosting 80 youth for a day full of celebration and learning about gender equity and building a sustainable future through interactive activities (music, poetry, dance, plays). Each participant was given a citrus tree plant, from Jardin Verdure Pepiniere, to take home and care for. They learned about the impact of agriculture on climate change, and the nutritional benefits of citrus. This is part of an ongoing pilot project with New York University's first ever Global Doctoral of Nursing Practice studying Positive Youth Development.
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Join us in calling for equal pay, equal economic opportunity, equal legal rights, reproductive rights, and the prevention of violence against women and girls.
Please consider a one-time donation or becoming a FAHM IMPACT PARTNER (monthly donor). Your strong and steady monthly support will empower Midwives in doing what they do best: keeping birth and reproductive services safe, respectful and accessible and #BreakTheBias.
Investing in midwives means investing in women and girls for a stronger and equitable today and tomorrow.
