Dressed as the Statue of Liberty in Washington Square Park, a young woman performs on stage for a rally celebrating International Women's Day.
International Women's Day celebrates the many achievements and contributions of women across the globe. Many governments have begun to recognize the political agency of their female citizens, and as the world changes, women have worked in various ways to bring down barriers to their participation in the political and economic spheres. In celebration of those contributions, Stratfor is taking a moment to emphasize and amplify some of the many women around the world who have taken to the streets to change their communities and the world.
