Happy International Women's Day

International Women's Day, observed annually on March 8th, celebrates the historical struggles and ongoing achievements of women globally. It reminds us of the progress made towards gender equality and highlights the challenges that persist. Recognizing women's contributions is vital for the continued progress of our society.

FEAP acknowledges this significance by offering a curated reading list of books authored by women. These resources not only support individual well-being but also promote diverse perspectives essential for creating an inclusive culture. By providing these resources, FEAP aims to empower all individuals and advocate for gender equality. Let's honor International Women's Day by celebrating women's accomplishments and committing to a future where everyone can thrive and contribute to the well-being of our families, communities, and greater society.
