TODAY IS.... International Women's Day! This year's theme is #BeBoldForChange. Every year, March 8th is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900's, when great unrest and critical debate was occurring amongst women. Women's oppression and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. Then in 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.The first National Women's Day was observed across the U.S. in 1909. In 1911, International Women's Day was first celebrated in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.

TODAY IS THE START OF HERSTORY MONTH!

Here's your HERstory Month fact of the day:

Born Augusta Ada Byron on December 10, 1815, the only legitimate child of poet Lord Byron and Anne Isabella Byron, Ada Lovelace was a writer and mathematician. She worked on Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, an early all-purpose computer. Her notes, written in 1842 and 1843, for the Analytical Engine became the first algorithm encoded to be processed by a machine. Therefore, Lovelace was the world's first computer programmer. Throughout her life, Lovelace referred to herself as an analyst and a "poetical scientist."
