About the event

Every year on March 8th since 1975, the United Nations has simultaneously celebrated International Women’s Day as a commemoration of women’s achievements. In their founding message, the United Nations said their mission was “to recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.” By 1975, the world knew of Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Billie Jean King, Hillary Clinton, and many others who had made or were making history in America. Their contributions to women’s equality -- and racial equality -- formed the forefront of the women’s movement. To view the resources developed by The Diversity Movement, click HERE.
