International Women's Day

Iwd _long

Each year around the world, International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

WWHI's theme for this year's IWD is COMING HOME, inspired by the song. Through our health programs, WWHI helps women COME HOME to their families and communities. The lyrics capture what we hope all women will be able to say after childbirth:

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the World I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday...
Back where I belong, I never felt so strong
I feel like there’s nothing that I can’t try
And if you with me put your hands high
If you ever lost a light before, this ones for you
And you, the dreams are for you...

You can celebrate International Women's Day on March 8 by supporting WWHI's mission in two ways:
1. Host an event.
2. Donate.

Happy International Women's Day!
