Today is International Women’s Day and some of you may be asking yourself questions like “What can I do to get involved?” “Why do we need this and why is it being talked about?” “Is it a celebration or is it a somber occasion?” 

Chelsey Cole, Charity Relations Specialist at Benevity, believes it’s both. "I will take every opportunity to celebrate women’s accomplishments, but the fact that International Women’s Day exists at all weighs on my heart because it highlights the fact that society is still not at a place where everyone has an equal and fair chance of being successful."
