International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8 is “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.” Observed since the early 20th century, IWD is an annual  celebration of women and a call to accelerate gender equality through a show of unity, solidarity, reflection, advocacy, and action.

This year, celebrate IWD at the co-op by supporting the women makers, farmers, and business owners of local products found at the co-op.
