Celebrating International Women’s Day in the Optical Community

NEW YORK—This Friday, March 8, the world celebrated International Women’s Day. Each year, we dedicate the month of March to honoring women, and March 8, in particular, to remembering the women who’ve paved the way before us. International Women’s Day was marked officially for the first time in 1911, and, since then, has been celebrated every year. It is a recognized public holiday in many countries, including Belarus, Cuba, Nepal and Ukraine, among many others.
