UN warns Ebola could infect 10,000 people per week—unless we act now

International Women's Day 2014 Action Guide

Resources for Oxfam America volunteers

Every March 8 for more than a century, millions of people around the world have come together to celebrate International Women’s Day. Here in the US, supporters like you join Oxfam for an annual celebration that also raises awareness about women’s efforts to overcome poverty and injustice. You’ve hosted thousands of events, signed petitions, shared inspiring stories and photos, and much more.

This year, join in by honoring a woman in your community who is leading the fight against poverty and hunger. By highlighting women who are acting locally and helping globally, you’re showing that these actions matter—and sending a powerful message about the role of women as a force for change.
