International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

There are plenty of online events and activities designed around IWD. For the past few years I have marked it with a blog post signing you to lots of resources and goodies.
My IWD always arrives early when I receive my postcard from Coral Carter, from Australia. Always detailing inspiring words and incredible artwork by herself and other women. I am filled with gratitude, not only for receiving the gift – which stays and is displayed for a year, but also it reminds me of the powerful, creative women I know and the friendships I hold dear.
The full picture in all it’s glory and card are more beautiful than my cut and paste… just a taste…
This year I created my IWD postcard for all of you – so gift yourself some time, get your pens ready and word some magic.
You can create your own postcards of action here.
