5 Ways To Celebrate International Women’s Day

March 8 marks International Women’s Day which is a day that celebrates global “social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women” according to the International Women’s Day website. It also brings awareness to gender parity. The special day was formed in the early 1900s after The Socialist Party of America presented the holiday, which was then called National Women’s Day in 1909 and later became International Women’s Day after the idea was proposed at the International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen.

Each year International Women’s Day has a theme and this year’s campaign theme is #BreaktheBias. IWD explains that “whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field.”

Now that you know the history and message behind the significant holiday, here’s how to celebrate:

2.Wear the Colors

The colors that represent International Women’s Day are purple, green, and white. The website defined each color with purple signifying “justice and dignity,” green symbolizing “hope,” and white representing “purity, albeit a controversial concept.”

Find a woman-focused non-profit that you can support today. IWD’s website has a list of charities and organizations to choose from or you can search for a local organization to support that can range from women’s shelters to non-profits that provides education to young girls.

4.Support a Woman-Owned Business

Whether it’s an online boutique or the juice bar next door, let’s show some monetary support to our women business owners. You can do this by making a purchase from their business and also get others to support by spreading the word about it.

Smile, Sis! These Five Improvements Can Upgrade Your Oral Hygiene Instantly

This article is in partnership with Sensodyne.

Our teeth are connected to so many things - our nutrition, our confidence, and our overall mood. We often take for granted how important healthy teeth are, until issues like tooth sensitivity or gum recession come to remind us. Like most things related to our bodies, prevention is the best medicine. Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
