Today is International Women’s Day and we want to wish all the women at Circa, the women in your families and among your friends, Happy Women’s Day!
March is also Women’s History Month and this year’s theme is: “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.” Thanks to the many courageous women in history – Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks. RBG, and countless others – women today enjoy the rights, working conditions, and privileges that were only afforded to men in the past.
Today and the month of March is a great time for both our women and men at Circa to look back at the events in history and celebrate the achievements and contributions of women in all aspects of society.
