This year, International Women’s Day, the annual event celebrating the social, economic, political and cultural achievements of women, is taking place on March 8. This year’s theme is #BeBoldforChange. There are studies that estimate it will take over 170 years for women to achieve gender parity in the workplace. It is unfathomable to me that unless we make a strong, concerted and yes, bold effort. Our children and their children will be still be constrained by the same glass ceiling that serves as an extra barrier to women breaking through and reaching their full potential today.
As one of International Women’s Day’s partners, Avon has created the Empowerment Strength Charm Bracelet ($6), and Sterling Silver Empowerment CZ Ring ($20). 20% of the retail price of each item will be donated to the Avon Foundation to fund programs to end violence against women.
