Show your support
Use this day as a chance to support your favorite women-owned or women-run businesses. Round up your friends or family and go eat dinner at a woman-owned restaurant, or splurge on a new outfit at your favorite boutique.
Travelling and exploring exotic places is always part of “to do” list, then how about doing it now? It’s a long weekend! Grab your mother, sisters, daughters or the gal pal gang and climb the mountains, go on a road trip, try out camping under the stars and what not.
The whole year, you give up all your eating and cravings to fit into the society’s ideology of perfect body by extensive workouts and starving yourself, Its time to give it a break. So, ditch your diet plans and grab some real food and discover your taste buds and try different cuisine
Teaching the next generation
Educate the next generation of feminists and explain to your kids why the day is celebrated, and how important it is for women and men to be treated equally. Read about remarkable women, watch an inspiring girl power movie, or volunteer together.
This is the perfect time to show your gratitude toward a woman who inspires you. Send your mom or grandma a bouquet and thank them for everything they’ve taught you. Surprise your best friend with a thoughtful letter. Reach out to a female leader in your community and thank them for their work.
