International Women's Day

Every year on March 8, the world celebrates International Women’s Day. IWD has been celebrated for over 100 years, with the first official gathering taking place in 1911. Since that time, the global day allows us a chance to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. 

We found just a few titles we wanted to highlight that celebrate women. Some may appear to be just for younger readers but we’re a big fan of adults checking out books for kids too. It’s a great starting place for a lot of topics. But there are some adult titles in here too. We hope there’s a book (or three) in this list you’ll want to check out.
