#InspireInclusion: Celebrate women with us

It has become a tradition for Shootin’ the Breeze to celebrate local women in March, the month that begins with International Women’s Day.

The IWD website says, “International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.”

It belongs to each of us, which means not only to women. We can all benefit from inspiring inclusion, which is this year’s theme. IWD explains it this way:

When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion,

we forge a better world.

And when women themselves are inspired to be included,

there’s a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Collectively, let’s forge a more inclusive world for women.

This year’s Celebrate Women special feature provides the perfect opportunity to share appreciation for the women in our personal lives and in the community. The March 27 issue will focus on the contributions of women and girls in our communities and the amazing things they do.

On March 8, make time to say thank you to the women in your life.
