International Woman’s Day

womens-day-3198008_1920Happy International Women’s Day! In honour of this day, I’m including this off schedule post to recognize International Women’s Day. The first time Woman’s Day was celebrated was on February 28 1909. A few years later, it was moved to March 8th. Between the #MeToo campaign and rampant sexual allegations against public figures, there’s been a strong focus on equality and gender parity this year. It’s clear that we’ve made some good strides but we cannot get complacent as we still have a way to go.

#PressForProgress Theme

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #PressForProgress. While we’ve made great progress in the past century, according to Global Gender Gap report, globally gender parity is regressing and will take over 200 years get there. This seems like an awful long time considering the progress we’ve made in the last century. So with that, here are some highlights of female financial bloggers.

    200 years to reach gender equality is such a staggering number. I gotta hope we can do something in our lifetime to make that not be true.

      Yes, coming across that statistics was staggering. The good news is I assume that’s a time in point figure. I’m sure that can be influenced for the better!
