International Women’s Day is celebrated every day at DFW.
By Jamye Cooper
DFW Executive Director
Looking out at a beautiful blanket of snow, it’s hard for me to imagine the first day of spring is March 20th. I look forward to spring’s warmer temperatures when the outdoors bursts forth with vibrant color. It is an amazing time of growth and renewal.
An ideal time for us to grow and renew our resolve for change comes on International Women’s Day, March 8th. On that day, we celebrate the incredible work that women across the globe are doing to secure women’s rights and shape more equitable societies. It is a day to reflect on the work yet to be done. It is a day to think about the hundreds of thousands of women whose voices aren’t heard and are excluded from realizing their full potential. Does this sound like what we do every day at Dining for Women? I believe so.
Dining for Women , the work that we do together is so very important, and it takes each and every one of us to move the needle for real change for women and girls across the globe. I encourage you to take this opportunity to reflect upon our connectivity with women everywhere and how together we are creating positive change. Women and men together have the obligation to once and for all make subordination of women an issue of the past. Thank you for all that you are doing to make this a reality.
To spotlight International Women’s Day we will be posting a news item, tweet, Facebook post or link every day of something you can do to celebrate women’s efforts around the world and at home, to help raise awareness of the issues of gender inequality and violence against women and to make a difference in someone’s life. Not only on March 8, but every day.
