On March 8, people from around the world will observe International Women's Day. For more than a 100 years, the day has commemorated women's achievements and the ongoing campaign for gender equality. This year's theme comes with a hashtag: #BeBoldForChange.
“Each one of us — with women, men and non-binary people joining forces — can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity," explained the organizers of International Women's Day. "Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.”
At Copperfield's Books, we believe International Women's Day provides an important opportunity to raise awareness and drive greater change for women. We plan to participate by hosting a #BeBoldForChange event.
All eight Copperfield's stores in Sonoma, Napa, and Marin counties will set up postcard writing stations on March 8. Everyone is welcome to come in and take the time to write their representatives expressing their concerns, view, and ideas. Copperfield's will pay the postage and mail the postcards. We also will encourage participants to get to know each other and talk about actions they plan to take to help accelerate gender parity across the planet.
We're looking forward to celebrating International Women's Day and we hope you are, too. Will you #BeBoldForChange this Wednesday?
