Happy Birthday GlobalEd Leadership & Happy International Women’s Day: Celebrating Women and Girls Around the World!

Dear GlobalEd Readers,

On March 8, 2018—International Women’s Day–we created this website. So, we are celebrating our third birthday!  It’s amazing how our readership has grown to more than 9000 annually. I’m very grateful to our university Distinguished Fellows as well as to the NGO and school-based practitioners who have contributed blogs. Thank you!

Because we are celebrating women around the world today, I want to share those blogs written over the last three years about educating girls and women, and the journeys of some of those remarkable women. Also, at the end of this blog, check out the awesome lineup of Latinas speaking online at San Jose State University’s Lurie College of Education this Friday– March 12, 3:30 PST—it is free and open to all. Don’t miss it!

Show your solidarity!


Raise your hand high to show you’re in and that you commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality.

March 8 – International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Worldwide groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality. IWD has been observed since the early 1900’s and is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.
