The World Economic Forum has predicted that global gender equality is estimated to be achieved by 2133.

CNN did a great story on women all around the world and how they are impacting their community. These stories will inspire you to what is possible through determination and strength.

If you have a story of someone who has been an inspiration locally or globally, we would love to hear about them! Let’s work to make everyday International Women’s Day. Let’s also ensure a bright and equal future for girls so that they can continue to make an impact for themselves and the world.
