The Women of 2TON

International Women’s Day is celebrated globally every year on March 8 and dates back to 1911. This year’s theme was #EachforEqual, reminding us that it’s the responsibility of each individual to work towards gender parity.

The first IWD, over a century ago, was aimed to eliminate discrimination against women and to help women gain equal participation in global policies. Pretty much exactly what we’re still fighting for today.

The crazy thing is that, according to the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap report, gender equality won’t happen for more than 200 years. Seems unbelievable, right?

The women of 2TON are a strong, intelligent, funny, powerful and dynamic group who recognize the importance of supporting each other and raising each other up. The theme of IWD 2020 is drawn from the idea of ‘Collective Individualism,’ meaning we are all parts of a whole.

At 2TON, this is certainly true. Collectively, we work together each day to accomplish our individual roles, maximize productivity, and ultimately achieve success.

In light of IWD, the women of 2TON shared their female favorites—authors, musicians, mentors, and even fictional characters. Participating in conversations about strong women, interesting women, influential women—is one way we can focus year-round on calls to action that will decrease the global gender gap.

Together we can make change happen. Together we can help to achieve gender parity in the world. And at 2TON, we’re always better when we’re together.

Most Inspirational Female to You – That’s tough! I think if we could all just be more like Ellen Degeneres, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, and my mom, the world would be a much more beautiful place.
