Celebrating International Women's Day
For over a century, International Women's Day, held on 8 March each year, has marked a day of celebration and advocacy for women's rights. At PortoVino, we love this day! A day when we get to honor and celebrate amazing women all across the globe. So grab your favorite glass of wine and learn a few ways to celebrate the women in your life!
Send an email to a female co-worker - Who doesnt’t love to get a nice email, right? Maybe just tell them why you think they are superwomen. No question about it, this will surely brighten their day.
#choosetochallenge- Every year a hashtag is dedicated to International Women’s Day to challenge the status quo. So if you want to help raise awareness against bias and take a stand for equality, here is a great way to do that. This simple,yet impactful way shows your commitment to challenging inequality. Simply take a selfie and use#choosetochallenge and post on your fave social media.
Host a virtual lunch- Grab a few of your besties and host a virtual lunch and toast each other (since the pandemic may put a damper on in person lunch date). Talk about your accomplishments and successes big and small and of course the amazing bond you share. Raise your glass and go ahead and pat yourselves on the back-after all you deserve it.
Attend a virtual panel- Nothing like hearing women share their experiences and knowledge to really get inspired. Due to the pandemic, most if not all of the International Women’s Day speakers have chosen to go virtual- so you have many great choices. Here is a link to a few different ones, that we think may be perfect.
Pay Homage- Is there a certain women who inspires you? Why not pay a little homage to them? Maybe dress up like them, share their favorite quote, tell a friend why this woman inspired you so much. Have a little fun with this one.
We are a small team here at Portovino and we care deeply about equality and women’s rights. So you can be sure on March 8th, we will raise our glasses to all those amazing women out there. This one is for you! Please join us!
