Today is International Women's Day

International Women's Day happens every March 8th, and it's a special time when people all over the world celebrate the achievements of women. We look at how far we've come in treating everyone equally, but also at the things that still need to change. Women have been working hard to get fair pay, have control over their bodies, and stop violence against them. This day is a chance to honor the amazing things women have done throughout history and to remind everyone that we still have work to do to make sure every woman has the same opportunities to succeed.
