    March 8 is International Women’s Day, a time to celebrate the social, cultural, and political accomplishments of women while reflecting upon the work that still needs to happen in order to increase equality, participation, and empowerment of women across the globe. On this day last year, Pope Francis shared a special greeting for all women who seek to build a more humane and welcoming society: “A world where women are marginalized is a barren world because women not only bear life; they also give us the ability to see beyond. They see beyond themselves, they give us the ability to understand the world with different eyes, to sense and feel things with a more creative, patient and tender heart.”
