International Women’s Day 2017

It’s International Women’s Day and the Twitterverse is filled with positive and constructive conversations about change. I just wanted to leave a little reminder about the importance of equity, which takes into account that not everyone starts life with the same opportunities, and also that not everyone faces the same barriers.
