Seven Ways to Celebrate GRL PWR

March is the designated month to celebrate and acknowledge women all around the world. What started as a day to celebrate women has now evolved into a whole month. Although women should be celebrated 365 days a year, 24/7, we’ll take it. So if you’re looking for ideas here are nine ways to celebrate and embrace femininity! 

 

Research women in history

Women’s International Month celebrates current women and women who paved the way for all of us. This is the perfect opportunity to research real-life women who inspire us all.
