It is March 8th and the feeling of female empowerment is in the air, which can only mean one thing. It’s International Women’s Day!
Why Celebrate International Women’s Day?
This over century-old holiday has two goals. For one, it celebrates females from history that pushed the world towards gender equity as well as empowerment. Additionally, it highlights the amazing ways that females today are continuing the their movement through activism, philanthropy, and other mediums.
As a nonprofit that serves and empowers those with Turner Syndrome, a genetic condition that affects females, we are proud to celebrate this holiday! This year, we are celebrate International Women’s Day by highlighting amazing members of the TS community who were nominated to be featured in our gallery. You can see their photos and read the empowering statements about them below!
