This year, Morguard joined the rest of the world in commemorating International Women’s Day. For more than 100 years, Women’s Day has sought to celebrate the contributions of women in communities around the globe. It is a day to set aside cultural, national, and religious differences and honor the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women worldwide.
The path to a truly global holiday has taken many decades. The first official Women’s Day was organized in America in 1909, and by 1911 there were celebrations in several countries. Finally, in 1975, International Women’s Day was officially recognized by the United Nations.
Women’s rights have seen enormous strides over the years, but there is still much work to be done for gender equality throughout the world. Morguard is proud to stand with the women in our community. This year’s United Nations theme for International Women’s Day, “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change,” fits in perfectly with Morguard’s core values.
We asked members of the Morguard family to send us names and photos of treasured women who have made an impact in their lives, along with their favorite quote celebrating women. Here are their responses.
