Huge strides have been made in gender equality since International Women’s Day was first celebrated in 1909. Today there are female heads of state, women in the boardroom, and impressive role models for generations of girls to follow in all walks of life. This is why March 8—the day on which we honor women’s social, economic, cultural, and political successes—is so important.
A Mark Of Honor
In many countries, International Women’s Day is an official holiday, with some regions giving it the same status as Mother’s Day. It offers a chance to applaud the milestones achieved by mothers and wives, female partners, friends and colleagues, and to focus on their many contributions to the workplace, the home, and society (often simultaneous!) with gestures that say: “Thank you, I don’t know how you do it.”

Red = Power
Follow tradition with a gift in the color that symbolizes power and strength—the red spectrum characterizes the International Women’s Day campaign palette. For inspiration, consider giving a watch—always a confident style statement, and an appropriate way to show a female co-worker or business partner how much she is valued and respected. Even delicate gifts such as jewelry sets, earrings and bracelets in standout red, rose or pink tones will show solidarity with the cause—a welcome acknowledgment of the occasion.
Wherever International Women’s Day is marked, the goal is the same: to celebrate the acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played a part in the history of their countries and communities; and to raise awareness of the ongoing need for gender equality. Honor the inspiring women who have contributed so much with gifts that pay tribute to their efforts.
