Organizations across Maine are saying “thank you” to important women in their lives.
MAINE, USA — From our mothers and sisters to best friends and mentors, communities across Maine are honoring important women in their lives on Wednesday.
March 8 is International Women’s Day, a global effort to promote gender equity, inclusion, and celebrate women’s achievements across all sectors.
“IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people,” according to the International Women’s Day website. “Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.”
Here in Maine, people are doing their part to recognize important women that are making a community impact.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the organizations across the state that are celebrating.
