Oh, do we love a little girl power! And this year we’ve seen a lot of it. Now more than ever, global activism for women’s equality is bringing movements like #metoo and #timesup into the spotlight.

So, of course, we will continue to do that this year with the official 2018 International Women’s Day theme #pushforprogress in mind.
