17 Ways To Celebrate International Women's Day

by Alexa Tucker

OK ladies, now let's get in formation — International Women's Day is right around the corner on Wednesday, March 8, and it's a chance for women everywhere to join together and celebrate some strong as hell ladies, including ourselves. And while we're at it, it's also a great opportunity to treat ourselves (or any other important woman in our lives) to a little gift that expresses what it means to be a proud woman and a feminist.

There's no question that it's an incredibly important time to speak out for equal rights, and that includes women's rights. By wearing a tee shirt or carrying a tote that puts this "radical" idea front and center, we're sending the message that our voices are all around, and we'll continue to make them heard. Plus, many feminist products and pieces give back to important organizations that support women, including Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and Girls Who Code. Shopping with a cause has never felt better.

So, in honor of International Women's Day, dig out your Women's March gear from January 21 and add to your merch collection with one of these 17 amazing pieces that are worth breaking out the credit card for. Work 'em with pride on March 8 and all year long after that.
