#BalanceforBetter Is the International Women's Day Theme for 2019: and We Love It!

March is Women’s History Month, and March 8 is International Women’s Day. The campaign theme for 2019 is #BalanceforBetter—meaning that “a balanced world is a better world.” We agree. #BalanceforBetter asks us to celebrate the achievements of women and girls, increase awareness of bias, and take a stand against social injustice.

#BalanceforBetter is a wonderful theme. Let us explain why we love it and how we see it in as integral to Little Colorado. Read on to find out why.
