Today is International Women’s Day, a day meant to empower women all over the world and celebrate their social, economic, cultural and political achievements.
The campaign theme for this year was “balance for better.”
There were events all across the nation celebrating women today, including rallies, conferences and festivals.
The day aimed to bring attention to women’s accomplishments and obstacles all around the world.
Even here in Hagerstown, the women’s club staff makes an effort every day to support women in the community.
Linda Ogilvie, executive director for the Women’s Club said, “There is a great need for it here because women are underpaid and have different challenges in life that they have to overcome, so we try to help with that.”
The month of March is also Women’s History Month.
