Get ready to rock out, because it’s International Women’s Day, and we’ve compiled our first-ever Spotify playlist that is about to be your go-to girl power soundtrack!
International Women’s Day is our favorite annual March 8th global holiday celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women! “But what about International Men’s Day?!” cries out the boardroom full of men [except for a few cute girls who apologetically disrupt the conversation to bring them their coffee and messages]? Well, hold onto your trembling testicles because there actually IS an International Men’s Day — annually on November 19th — although if you ask me (and yes, I am aware that nobody did), it receives far less attention than IWD because we’re already so busy celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of men on the other 364 days a year. …sigh. …BUT WE’RE GOING TO CHANGE THAT!!!
International Women’s Day is a time for celebration, but it also serves as a call to action to accelerate gender parity — and if you’re reading this, I want you to promise me that you will do something meaningful today (…or sometime this weekend, or in this lifetime) to further the cause. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Volunteer or make a monetary donation to a charitable cause supporting women;
- Send an email to the women in your workplace thanking them for being awesome and supportive, then plan a secret offsite meeting when you can start scheming your plan to take over the company (…or to start your own BETTER company);
- Leave your kids/pet/to-do list with the most responsible man you know, turn off your phone, and treat yourself to a spa day;
- Attend a local IWD event! Find a march, rally, concert, party, or workshop near you — check sites like Eventbrite (I know, I know, those of us who live in NYC are incredibly spoiled!) or refer to your local event bulletin of choice.
You know what this party needs? A rockin’ women’s empowerment playlist! Don’t miss our first-ever Spotify playlist for International Women’s Day, featuring 65+ of the best women’s empowerment anthems from badass female artists who are guaranteed to get you jumping on the couch shouting, “Who run the world?
