U.S. State Department Supports Programs To Help Women #BeBoldForChange

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Celebrating International Women’s Day 2017
In this blog post, Irene Marr, who serves in the Secretary’s Office for Global Women’s Issues at the State Department, writes, “As we celebrate more than 100 years since the inaugural International Women’s Day, we are once again reminded that despite the great strides women and girls from all walks of life have made, endemic challenges — often mired in cultural, social, and political norms — still keep half the population worldwide from realizing its full potential.” Marr highlights several of those challenges, including gender-based violence, and discusses U.S.-supported programs working to empower women worldwide “with the tools, knowledge, and access to” #BeBoldforChange (3/7).
