Celebrate global sisterhood and self-love in honor of International Women's Day. The holiday, which is observed in countries across the world, dedicates 24 hours to spotlighting women’s successes and emphasizing the continued need for full equality under the law.

Women are phenomenal in everything that they do on a daily basis, guess that is why there was enough reason to have an International Women’s Day to celebrate the wonderful contributions of women in the society.

And with this year’s theme factored around the working woman in the changing work industry and the chance to create an equal working environment for all women by the year 2030, this even gives more reason to come up with cool things to do on this remarkable day since women work so hard every day. #BeBoldForChange
