International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day is not owned by one organization, instead belonging “to all groups collectively everywhere.”
“If you want to see things happen at a global level, start at the village level. Give women the tools and education and they will drive the change.” - Melinda Gates.
Women United, formerly known as WLC, here in Southeast Louisiana has been the driving force of change to improve the lives of women and children throughout our region. Over the past 15 years, Women United has invested $2.4 million to benefit programs critical to the well-being of women and children in our community.
