Happy International Womens Day!

8 Mar

Today is the 100th International Womens Day. Its so humbling to think of all the work by our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers to create the world we are in now. Though there is still much more that needs to be done for true gender equality, we are filled with love & gratitude for all of our feminist foremothers.

Today, share the day with the special women in your life how much they mean to you. Reflect on the role of women in your life. Give a flower to a woman who has had an impact on you and spend time with those you love. Venus Collective and family will be spending the evening at The Tree of Life: Honoring the Influence of Women in Community at Allyu Spa with Everyday Medicine Woman to reflect, honor and appreciate everything that women in our Chicagoland community have done at . Join us if you’d like! Info on post below
