International Women's Day To mark International Women's Day 2021 we #ChoosetoChallenge the stereotypical perception that leading entrepreneurs, activists, and philanthropists are male. Instead, we're celebrating pioneering women who are driving social change and innovation to give young girls access to education. From businesswomen to young female student leaders, we came together to celebrate visionary women and the impact they are having on young girls in remote regions of Nepal, Cambodia, and Myanmar through education.
