International Women’s Day is a worldwide observance of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women everywhere. Recognized since in the early 1900’s, the initiative believes that no single institution, corporation, charity, or government is solely responsible for the movement. Instead, they believe that all like-minded people should stand shoulder-to-shoulder to fight for justice and equality for women, no matter where they live. International Women’s Day inspires unity, promotes reflection, supports advocacy and encourages action.
A Worldwide Social Gathering: On March 8, men and women alike will be involved events that take place both locally and globally. The organizers of the celebration urge everyone to tell the world about their support by tagging social media posts with #BeBoldforChange.
Planned events range from a Technical Symposium in Toronto, to a formal luncheon in Hong Kong; from a women’s Career Fest in Nottingham to a Fun Run in Brisbane. There are organized events in 20 countries, 33 U.S.cities, and many virtual gatherings. If you wish to get involved, there is something for everyone!
Show Pride With Flowers: Both protea flowers and gladioli represent integrity, courage, and strength – making them the perfect flowers to honor the strong women in your life! Simply ask our experts to arrange a custom bouquet.
While the event is global, there are women all around you in Sarasota who are affecting change and making a difference. From the fight against human trafficking to educational opportunities for our young girls; from philanthropic efforts on a grand scale to local clubs. Maybe your best friend is shattering expectations at her job, or your neighbor advocates for the abused in court. International Women’s Day is your chance to recognize their efforts and to let them know that you are behind them.
Beneva Flowers has gifts, floral designs, and plants that will express your pride and admiration in a tangible way. We applaud the women everywhere who are working every day to make the world a better place for everyone.
