Celebrating International Women’s Day

(WCMH)– This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Planet 50-50 by 20-30”, which is a call to end the gender pay gap in 14 years.

First Lady Michelle Obama was among many to give a speech on International Women’s Day.

She gave her speech to young girls as part of her “Let Girls Be Girls” initiative.

Google has a special doodle up to help celebrate the day that includes a video if you click on it.
