International Women’s Day is Approaching!
March 3, 2014. International Women’s Day is just around the corner on March 8th and Coaches Across Continents is supporting it in full force. Inspiring change is the theme for International Women’s Day this year, and people around the world will be celebrating social, political, and economic achievements of women while focusing on further promoting women and girls everywhere.
All of CAC’s partners will be participating on March 8th, highlighting an important female figure in each of their respective communities or countries that they feel have made an impact in their everyday lives. This past year women throughout the world have been making waves, and Women’s Day is a time to celebrate and to shout out loud that women have the right to equality.
CAC partners have many monumental moments from 2013 that they can highlight on March 8th. This past year has been an inspiring year for women including events like the phenomenal speech that Malala made at the United Nations, and the mass crowds and supporters standing up in India and around the world to raise awareness and stop rape. Women and girls across the globe fight everyday to be treated equally in society, and March 8th is just another day to be heard, and to show girls they deserve the chance to become anything they choose.
Many CAC partners will be playing female empowerment games this year and hosting tournaments for the young girls and women in their communities. GOALS Haiti will be hosting their second Women’s Day tournament this year while also hosting a boys tournament to incorporate both genders and have an even playing ground. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for pictures and stories that we will be sharing from our partners’ Women’s Day events.
And look out for CAC’s Official Documentary of 2014 being released this Women’s Day. A beautiful video capturing our partnership with Slum Soccer of Nagpur India, it also fittingly highlights some incredible young women changing the game in their community.
