International Women's Day and "Spark"

 International Women's Day is Wednesday, March 8th. This is a day that is celebrated worldwide to highlight social, political, economic, cultural, and artistic achievements of women. This is also a day for raising awareness and a call to action to not stop fighting for equality. There are so many reasons this is a day of great importance, and there are so many ways one can participate.
