International Women's Day is on March 8th, and it’s a perfect time to celebrate the women in your life! From mothers to significant others to friends, acquaintances, coworkers, and even strangers, the women in your life have probably had a significant positive impact on you or the world. They deserve some thanks. In this week's Crossings at Irving Blog, we’ve got a few simple ways you can express your gratitude and celebrate these women and women everywhere.

Spend Time with Them

One of the best ways to show you care about the women in your life would be to spend time with them. Depending on the woman you’re spending time with, the activity you do may be different. You can watch a movie, bake some cookies, or even just chat! As you spend time with them, get to know them better, listen to their stories, and learn from their experiences.

Get them a Gift

A gift is a good way to let someone know that you care. These gifts don’t need to be big or grandiose. Instead, put thought and deliberation into your gifts. A thoughtful gift more accurately demonstrates how much they mean to you and can be the thing that makes their International Women's Day even better!

Learn about Impactful Women

There are many amazing women throughout history, and one way to celebrate women is to learn about the women who have made a significant impact on the world. We suggest learning about women such as Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, and Harriet Tubman. These women showed the world that women were not to be trifled with and that women are capable of many great things! You can also interview family members or find people to learn about in your community.

International Women's Day is a day to be celebrated by all. We hope you enjoyed these suggestions on how you could celebrate the women in your life. If you have other ways of celebrating, leave a comment for our Irving, TX apartment community!
