Did you know that International Women’s Day is March 8th? As a day to celebrate women, their accomplishments, and their impact on the world, International Women’s Day is the perfect opportunity to give thanks to the women who have changed your life for the better. There are plenty of ways to express your gratitude, but we’ve decided to share with you some of our favorites in this week’s Virginia Square Plaza Blog.

Thank a Woman

This may seem like a no-brainer, but the women in your life probably have done many things that should have garnered your thanks but didn’t. It can be easy to overlook the small things people have done for you, so thank someone the next opportunity you get! A small “thanks” or a gift in some form can make their day and help them feel appreciated. They deserve it!

Educate Yourself

Women have been changing and building the world for centuries, but how much do you know of what they’ve done? A great way to spend your International Women’s Day is by learning more about the amazing women who have changed the course of history! Learn about the experiences of Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and other women whose names you haven’t even heard of before.

As you learn more, you’ll begin to see how courage, resilience, and determination was able to change the world for millions of women and people everywhere.

Foster Relationships

As normal and necessary as it is to focus on ourselves and where we want to go in life, fostering relationships with others can greatly increase the quality of our lives and those of others. Building the existing relationships you have with the women in your life will show them that you care and appreciate their presence in your life. Don’t let them fall into the background. Spend quality time with them and learn from their experiences.

International Women’s Day is a wonderful day to celebrate and appreciate women. In our opinion, women should be appreciated every single day, so we hope you use these tips on other days, as well, making it a way of life for how you view people of all genders and orientations.
