Tuesday, March 20th is the first day of spring, which is exciting for this Canadian gal. I’m happy for the warmer weather to come, the flowers to blossom and the many walks to come on local trails. The Vernal Equinox occurs on the 20th in 2018, which is why this date makes the first day of spring. Now the days will get longer, making for more daylight and shorter nights, until June 21 (summer solstice) when the opposite will happen.
Along with the warm and sun of spring days gives me a reason to smile, here are some great events to celebrate women during the spring season:
Continuing through the rest of March, the Spring Forward event in Brighton, located on England’s south coast, celebrates female contributions to digital culture. If you’re in the area and want to encourage women in technology, then there are several events for you to check out.
Prada’s 2018 Spring/Summer Collection
Miuccia Prada is heralding the new Spring/Summer 2018 collection as a celebration of women. She describes her approach to the new fashion lineup as, “Just wanting to change the world. Especially for women, because there’s so much against us, still.”
AWL Spring Celebration
AWL or the Association of Women Lawyers in Calgary, Alberta has a yearly Spring Celebration. This event honors newly-appointed female attorneys who recently passed the Alberta Bar. They gather in the AWL community to listen to quotes and anecdotes from more established lawyers.
Poet~tree EnMotion’s Spring Celebration
If you are in Philadelphia, PA, then stop by The Rotunda for a free community get-together held by Poet-tree EnMotion. Titled The 2018 Spring Equinox in Celebration of Women, this event will showcase women from a wide range of arts; there will be female musicians, drumming ensembles, poetesses, and more.
Women’s History Month
And, of course, March is Women’s History Month. It brings attention to the accomplishments of American girls and ladies. Truthfully I want to highlight them throughout the year, along with women around the globe! After all, females have done amazing things to shape our world, from impacting women’s rights to making impressive inventions.
I wish you a beautiful spring and please take a moment to celebrate yourself (yup, you deserve it!) or another woman in your life ♥
