Simply Good: Celebrating Women

Every March 8, International Women’s Day is celebrated to honor the social and political achievements of women around the world. Originally dubbed “National Woman’s Day” in New York City in 1909, the holiday was established worldwide in 1911, when millions of people across Europe organized parades and demonstrations, demanding the right to vote for women.

Today, women are still fighting for the right to be seen and heard, but, for some, the fight looks a little different. The articles we’ve selected this month highlights women who have fought their way to success in male-dominated industries. Through sheer grit and perseverance, these women are flipping norms every day, and that is always worth celebrating.

Simply Good: Women’s History Edition

This year marks the 33rd celebration of Women’s History Month in the United States. What started out as a day of observance in 1911 eventually became a week-long celebration in 1982. Today, countries all over the world spend 31 days each spring acknowledging the vital importance of women in history. Is it possible to fit all the historical contributions of women in a handful of weeks each year? Of course not; but any time spent looking back at what women have accomplished can only cultivate a stronger momentum for what women can—and will—do in the future. We hope you enjoy just a few of the stories that have inspired us in the last year.
