It’s that time of year again: International Women's Day! Held on March 8th every year — to honor the achievements of women around the world, celebrate yourself, and love on the amazing women in your life — the special day is right around the corner. In 2024, whether you’re a WLW, you don’t identify as a woman, you’re a girl’s girl or you’re someone who simply stands by celebrating all that women are, it’s time to celebrate.


“Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality,” the International Women’s Day organization says, “Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity. IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid.”


So how do you plan to celebrate? Whether you host an IWD party or even buy from a women-owned boutique, you’ve just got to find what speaks to you most, like Gay Mom’s Club’s editors did when we chose our five fave ways to ‘toast’ to women around the world, below.

Honor the women who came before you (and those who are here now)

1. Attend a women’s rights rally in your city

Did you know that most big cities host rallies and marches in honor of International Women's Day? This is a great way to show your support for women and provide a voice to the issues women face, like continued gender equality and advocacy for women's rights.

To find one near you, try a simple Google search or check out the International Women’s Day website to learn about official marches in your area.


2. Host a Women's Day Brunch

We love a good brunch. Gather your friends and family for a special brunch to celebrate the women in your life. With mimosas or a mocktail in hand, it can be so uplifting and fun to share stories of the women in your life and talk about the women you look up to. 

And if you’re part of a community like Gay Mom’s Club, you can even invite your virtual friends to have a Zoom brunch party, or a co-working sesh inspired by the work ethic of outstanding women in the world.


3. Support Women-Owned Businesses

You know that amazing boutique down the street? What about your go-to local coffee shop? Or the online candle shop you buy from every now and then? Chances are, some of your favorite places to spend your money are women-owned and operated. And if they’re not, this is your time to branch out and support women-owned businesses somehow. 

Whether you're in need of a new piece of jewelry, or you want to buy a hand-made gift for your sister, shop women-owned this IWD.


4. Educate Yourself

Next up, sometimes celebrating means taking the time to learn about the history of International Women's Day and the ongoing struggle for gender equality. Luckily, we live in a time where there are so many wonderful books and well-done documentaries to look into, not to mention social media.

Through TikTok alone, we have access to so much knowledge and information about the history of IWD, and what it truly means to stand with and for women around the world.

5. Hype up the women around you

Nothing says celebrating like hyping up the women in your everyday life. Take it from Keeley and Rebecca on Ted Lasso; nothing beats friendships with women, women supporting women, women loving women, and yes, everyone else supporting them, too.

Are you ready for International Women's Day? Let's come together and make the most of IWD 2024 this year. Leave us a comment to tell us how you plan to celebrate, below!
