Women support each other across communities, across cultures, across continents — offering inspired solutions for the benefit of our collective future. On this day of global celebration, join us — alongside millions of others — to support the elevation of women’s voices, leadership and impact across all sectors of society, as we work in partnership to determine our collective future and evolve our world!”

Caucus spokeswoman Kate Culver said, “I am excited about the future for women and the world as a whole because, more and more, women are standing and being heard. Being heard, that’s the important part. That’s when we’ll see a healthier, more just world.”
