6 Ways to Give Around International Women’s Day

Updated: 3 days ago

Gifts are powerful. International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also known in Italy as the Feste della Donne. To help you uplift the women in your life, here are 6 ways that your gifts can inspire change and celebrate them!

What Is the Feste della Donne?

In a joyful tradition that I have gotten to experience first hand, the Feste della Donne invites strangers and friends to honor the women in their life - in their homes, in their schools, even on the sidewalk - with a warm smile and, often, a small bundle of yellow mimosa flowers. It's bright, it's spontaneous, and it's thoughtful. The best gifts always are.

So, to inspire you to give this March, we've coupled our own sentiments about International Women's Day with some historic context from, with easy and impactful gift ideas to let the women in your life know how much they matter!

1. Give because We Stand on the Shoulders of Those Who Came before Us.

Activism: In the late 1800's and early 1900's, women activists fought hard for equality. The focus was largely on securing the right to vote and equal pay for equal work. These two issues - women's voice and participation in government; and the gender pay gap - largely remain key priorities well over a century later.

So, what can you do? Don't give up!

2. Give because Empowered Women Do Empower Women.

Feminism: Fast-forward to the 1970's and widespread feminist action saw women rallying, protesting and lobbying hard for inclusion, influence and equality. Feminists faced many challenges - systemic and societal - not only from opposing men, but also from other women.

Recognize the women in your life who inspire you and inspire positive change.
