International Women's Day - March 8, 2017

International Women's Day celebrates the social and economic achievements of women around the globe and raises awareness around the work that still needs to be done to achieve gender equity. This year's theme is #BeBoldForChange. We invite our viaONEHOPE community to join in on the action and host an event that raises funds for organizations promoting girls' education and empowerment or women's professional achievement. Choose from some of these great national organizations or find a local group that supports women and girls
