International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's - a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women's Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. "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 - whatever that looks like globally at a local level.

Thus, Scranton Women's Leadership Center would like to put together a campaign for women with you. How can you join the steps for women's equality and progress for all? The method of participation is as follows.

1. Take a picture of parts of woman's body, gesture or expression that can symbolize
    a woman’s beauty and wonderness.
2. Describe it in a short poem. The poem is recommended to be 10 lines and 2 Stanza
    in length.
3. Then send us them with a short self-introduction and the motivation of the work 
    via e-mail.
4. It will be uploaded on the center's website and Facebook by Scranton Women’s 
    Leadership Center.

 


Everyone, regardless of gender, can participate in this campaign.
Think of the value, beauty and energy of yourself, your sister, your mother,
your grandmother, your friends and your lover as a woman!
Do you want to keep their dignity?
Do you want to guarantee their rights?
Let us share our voices, heart and feelings and empower us!
Active participation of one person will gather one by one and bring about a big change of the world!
You are the main character standing in the midst of the wind of change!

* Period of a campaign: March 8 - April 7, 2017
