International (MNN) — March 8 is a day set aside to recognize the achievements of women, and to be inspired by their gifts and impact in the world.
The United Nations reports International Women’s Day started in the early 1900s in North America and across Europe due to labor movements. Over more the past 100 years, it has been chiseling and working away for women’s equality rights.
International Women’s Day is not just about several countries, clearly. It’s not about the smaller paychecks, either. It’s about helping women throughout the world realize their potential of becoming more than they could ever dream, and recognizing how far they’ve come already.
The Women for Jesus ministry, a branch of The JESUS Film Project, is using the day as a way for women to start fresh and new, by giving them the Gospel.
They have partnered with Better Life Bags to create a custom handbag stuffed with JESUS Film products. Women for Jesus is inviting women across the globe to purchase bags and send them to illiterate women and children. Not only would women and children receive custom handbags, but they’d also receive the gift of life.
Every woman deserves to have a voice and a chance to hear the Word of God. This International Women’s Day, help make that happen by clicking here.
