International Women's Day is a global event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world. It’s a day to celebrate progress made towards gender equality and to recognize the work that still needs to be done.
In New York City, there are countless inspiring Latinas who have made significant contributions to their communities and beyond. From activists to artists, entrepreneurs to educators, these women have broken barriers and paved the way for future generations.
On this International Women's Day, we celebrate all women who have paved the way for progress towards gender equality.
As we reflect on how far we've come in terms of women's empowerment but also recognize how much more work there still is left to do- let us continue advocating for equal opportunities for all women - regardless of race or ethnicity. We must uplift each other's voices so that our collective strength can bring about real change.
Happy International Women's Day! Let’s continue celebrating inspiring women like those at Vibra Latina who are working tirelessly towards advancing gender equality every day.
