Happy International Women’s Day!

Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day has been observed since 1911, so this year marks the 100th anniversary! International Women’s Day is a national holiday in many countries and is celebrated in some countries similarly to how Mother’s Day is celebrated in the United States.

International Women’s Day celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women in the past, present and future. This celebration is certainly relevant to the field of public relations, with estimates that about 70% of PR professionals are women.

In honor of International Women’s Day, watch the video below for an inspirational message from Michelle Bachelet, Former Chile President and Executive Director of UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
