From Mrs. Crocker:
Did you know that today is International Women’s Day? International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It’s not about saying women are better than men, it’s about recognizing that women and men do not have gender parity or equity...yet. This year’s theme asks people think about how they will #PressforProgress.
Will you challenge bias and stereotypes? Will you celebrate female achievements? Will you influence people’s opinions and ideas about women?
Stop by the library today to snap your picture with a #PressforProgress poster and get a little treat.
