There's no stopping these women from making their voices heard.
International Women's Day is always an occasion worth celebrating. This year, it's especially important.
Less than two months removed from the massive worldwide Women's March demonstration, women's rights advocates and allies remain fired up and ready to go in the fight for gender equity. Amnesty International called International Women's Day 2017 a "rallying cry," organizers rallied in the name of a "Day Without a Woman" strike, and protesters around the globe once again took to the streets for marches and demonstrations.
Some groups used the day as an opportunity to brush up on a few facts about women.

Like Katherine Johnson, an unsung hero who finally got her due in "Hidden Figures," and Meagan Taylor, who reminds us that existence shouldn't be a crime.
