Women have made great strides in the fight for equality, but gender bias continues to create huge barriers for many—especially immigrants, women of color, women with low incomes, and victims of domestic violence.

International Women's Day (March 8) and Women's History Month (March) offer an opportunity to celebrate women and the strides we've made towards equality, and to recommit ourselves to the ongoing struggles for women's rights, such as ensuring economic and educational opportunities for all women, ending violence against women, and addressing the harms to women and girls caught up in the criminal justice system.
