DISH Celebrates International Women’s Day

Contributor: Maddie Yerant, DISH Corporate Communications

March 8 marks an exciting day for women and allies across the world—International Women’s Day (IWD). Adopted in 1975 by the United Nations, this annual celebration recognizes women around the globe, their successes and accomplishments, and the bright future lying ahead.

Established in America in 1909, IWD now symbolizes a broad, encompassing movement as it’s celebrated by women and allies on every point on the political spectrum.

This year, as more women took office this January than ever before, you might have already seen celebrations taking place. Female lawmakers on both sides of the aisle wore white to the 2019 State of the Union to symbolize their record-breaking numbers and to promote a message of solidarity.
