International Women’s Day was originally instituted in 1909 to commemorate the Women’s Rights Movement. Now, the global day not only celebrates the political, economic, and social and cultural achievements of all women, but also functions as a call to action. Gender equality has yet to be achieved in any nation. Women, and especially women of color and immigrant populations, continue to be marginalized in the workplace, in the media, and in their everyday lives. Women are not represented equally in economic and political matters, and the gender pay gap is still wide. Violence against women remains worse than that of men. Female education, violence against women, access to healthcare, and reproductive rights remain low priorities to policy-makers.
The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs is holding a variety of events today in order to facilitate change and “…encourage women to #BeBold in their communities.” Among those events are a salary negotiation workshop, panel discussions on female leadership in academia and the community, and a presentation by astronaut and Senior Executive Colonel Pam Melroy.

A rally on the quad has been organized both for International Women’s Day, and to demand that SU become a Sanctuary Campus. Because of the intersectionality of the issues that women and immigrants face, the rally is discussing them simultaneously. Both students and faculty have made their voices heard, and anyone is welcome to speak. The rally is inclusive and welcomes people of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexualities, gender spectrums, immigration status, disabilities, and ages. By gathering and speaking out against oppression, we can facilitate the necessary changes in order to achieve equity and ensure social justice.
We hope you had a Happy International Women’s Day! Remember to #BeBold.
