Wear White & Purple for International Women’s Day
March 8, 2023 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
The suffragettes in both the US & the UK adopted white and purple as symbols of their movement; ever since, people have worn these colors as a sign of solidarity with the fight for gender equality. On International Women’s Day, show your support for women everywhere and remind others that this month is full of opportunities to learn more about and celebrate women’s achievements and to push for greater equity and appreciation for women’s contributions in the future.
