http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/08/world/international-womens-day-2017/index.html

Summary: On International Women's Day, women around the world wear either red to work or attend strikes to help call for equal rights. Some women have taken the day off of work to protest for equal rights in the workforce. Their goal: to have the work field become 50/50 by 2030. This day has become a huge buzz after the election of President Donald Trump. Many women are up in arms about the type of healthcare he plans for women of the future and not to mention the was he addresses women.

Connection: During the 1950s, the Montgomery Bus Boycott was a protest that banded together the blacks from riding public transport because of segregation. This protest has connection with International Women's Day, because they both advocate for justice and liberation. They both tried to change how people were treated in society and have succeeded tremendously.

  2. I am an avid supporter of women's rights, and as a female myself, I will join the fight against any injustice targeted towards us. All the rallies and protests that I've seen are effective as it bonded all women together, and not only that, but it also makes the government think about their decisions and take their calls under consideration.

  4. I support women's rights and I feel like there should be more rallies and protests because having them just one day won't be as effective as it could be. Many people did not even know about the day until they saw the geo tag on snapchat. I supported the day because it helps appreciate women and it also reminds us to support other women instead of trying to bring other down. We should all work together and support our cause and appreciation in the world.

  5. I am an advocate of women's rights as we are all made equal. These rallies are extremely effective as they raise awareness just as the Montgomery Bus Boycott did. Inequality in the workforce still exists and any efforts attempting to even the field is an effort well made. I did not participate in the International Women's Day but I support women's rights on a daily basis.

  6. I am an advocate of women's rights because gender, ethnicity, social status, etc. is not a justified reason to treat one differently. These rallies are effective because one person's voice can eventually change the world despite how long it may take. I did not participate on International Women's Day however, I do think it is important to recognize the important women in your life and all that they do.

  7. I am an advocate, of woman's rights, not just because I am a woman, but because I believe everyone should be treated equally and with respect. Also gender should not be a factor in wether or not a person should get rights, and neither should race. I think these rallies are effective because people are publicly supporting a cause the believe in, and the message of the rallies is widely known due to the wide publicity from the internet and news sources.

  11. I am an Advocate for women rights. I think in today's society we see Sexual imaging in all media. I feel our society is losing touch with respect for women. It's our job as the next generation to promote respect for women and see them as equal and as an individual.
