International Women’s Day On The Token Skeptic – Celebrate Skeptical Women

How can we, as a culture and as members of the global community, involve, educate, and inspire girls in a positive way?

Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Organisations, governments, charities and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.

My message this year? If you think there should be more young women interested in skepticism, then start finding and supporting the kinds of role models you think they should be checking out. Making a difference can use a little help at times.

Since the Token Skeptic podcast has featured a number of shows featuring women (and not just episodes ‘about skepticism’, but on feminism, social issues, activism and so forth) – I thought I’d post a few links to previous interviews.

Enjoy the read and check out the previous Token Skeptic episodes until the next one is out for today (“Episode One Hundred And Eleven – On How Now You See Her – Gia Milinovich And Sonya Pemberton“).

I also hope you enjoy Bridget Gray, with “I Am a Woman“.
