International Women's Day 2016: Pledge for Parity


Today is International Women's Day, celebrated every year on March 8. The UN's theme for this year's International Women's Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality."

The two accelerated goals of the UN theme are to "achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls" and "ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning."

In honor of International Women's Day, I plan to let all the wonderful ladies in my life know how much they mean to me. I also pledge to support and lift up all the women in my life.

Here are a few movies about inspiring women currently in my Netflix queue:

Who are the women who inspire you?
