International Women's Day Article Round Up

2017 started with a march.

With recent political disappoints in their minds, women and allies took to the streets in a historic protest that catapulted many issues that we face to the forefront of the public's awareness. In the criticism that followed the march, we saw the need for inclusion of all groups ring out, the need for all voices to be heard. We were reminded of women who resisted in the past  civil rights leaders, women in STEM, our mothers, our sisters, our friends. 

This International Women's Day we've gathered a few stories from around the world to highlight some of our triumphs and battles.
