March is a big month for women: it’s not just International Women’s Day, the global celebration commemorating advancements in women’s equality, but also Women’s History Month in the US and the 20th Anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. In celebration of these events, Women’s World Banking is dedicating its social media channels to highlighting how our network, supporters and other individuals and organizations we admire contribute to furthering women’s empowerment worldwide. Starting March 2nd, check out our Making it Happen Campaign PageFacebook, Pinterest, Instagram to see the photos and videos we’ve collected so far, and keep checking back as we will be adding more throughout the month, perhaps with your contribution among them!
