We’re Celebrating International Women’s Day

The earliest Women’s Day observance, called “National Woman’s Day,” was held on February 28, 1909 in New York. One year later, the holiday was changed to “International Women’s Day” and is recognized globally on March 8. It is a day for celebrating the movement for women’s rights including social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action.

We’d like to take this moment to recognize all of the women in healthcare. Thank you for continuing to make an impact on the lives of your patients and their families every day.
