International Women’s Day

Today, March 8, 2022, is International Women’s Day. IWD is a global recognition and celebration of women. The first IWD celebration occurred in 1911 in Denmark, and now it is recognized and celebrated worldwide. 

The day is commemorated yearly by:

  • Highlighting the achievements of women
  • Raising awareness surrounding women’s equity ( Ex. Equal Pay Gap) 
  • Promoting and fundraising for organizations and efforts focused on women’s concerns and gender equity. 

This year the theme of IWD is “Break the Bias,” which is meant to shed awareness of unconscious and implicit bias against women. In recognition of IWD and the 2022 theme, #BreakTheBias, here is a short list of GRCC eBooks supporting the cause.
