International Women’s Day
Today, International Women’s Day, the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation commends the millions of women and men across the state, country and world who are sharing their strength by participating in a #DayWithoutAWoman. By striking, marching, supporting women- and minority-owned businesses, donating to women’s organizations and #wearingred, we are building a collective voice in support of equity, justice and human rights for women. Like the marches on 1.21.17, this global protest demonstrates the power generated by women and men coming together to make a difference.
That difference means a world of gender equality for future generations:
- Equal and fair pay
- Quality healthcare and control over one’s own health choices
- Access to affordable childcare and family-friendly workplaces
- A safe world without domestic abuse
- Non-discrimination of gender expression and identity
The Women’s Foundation’s mission is to promote opportunity and equality for women and girls in New Hampshire. Our vision of social, political and economic equality is more important than ever and together we can make this a reality.
Thank you for all you are doing today on International Women’s Day and a #DayWithoutAWoman.
With you in spirit and action,
CEO, New Hampshire Women’s Foundation
