Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s start the day by admiring these people who are marching this week to celebrate International Women’s Day by bringing visibility the connection between farmworker poverty and Publix purchasing policy. In the video below, a worker tells us (in Spanish, but translated), “it’s important that all women move forward together, these hardworking women who are fighting every day for a better future – not just for themselves, but for the whole family” and a better future for the whole of society. It is women like these that we honor today and who inspire us to continue working toward gender equality and empowerment. Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me around!
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
