Goal: 15,000 Progress: 2,254
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

March 8th is International Women's Day and it has been celebrated for over a hundred years. Each year all over the world, people get together for conferences, rallies, theatrical performances, craft markets — activities that honor women's achievements and progress.

But did you know that close to 70% of the world's poverty-stricken are women? Did you know that between 100 and 140 million girls have experienced genital mutilation? How about that one in five women will be a victim of rape in her lifetime?

With numbers like these, it's clear that women have not yet attained full equality in our male-driven world. We need programs for job training, education, and family planning to give women the tools to make their own informed and educated decisions.

International Women's Day is a great place to start. Sign the pledge below promoting women's equality everywhere and in the comments section, tell us about a woman who inspires you.

Jan 25, 2016 Michelle Lee Hall I'm constantly inspired by Malala. I never realized how lucky I was to be able to go to school without fear, unlike other girls around the world. I want to help make it possible for more girls to be able to get an education.

Jan 14, 2016 (Name not displayed) My mom, who I would do anything for just to make her laugh. Her happiness is above my own and I want to fight for all women who need any kind of help. We should all come together, not keep breaking apart.

Nov 25, 2015 Ilecia Hanson My Aunt LaMonda really was an inspiration for me when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she had already past away, her experience with breast cancer and how she dealt with it, was a true inspiration to me and how I dealt with it
