Press For Progress: Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day. In 107 years, since its inception, women have made great progress. But there is more to do. “Press For Progress” is the 2018 theme of the organization and for women everywhere. Progress for gender parity; progress towards eliminating stereotypes; progress in recognizing women of achievement in sports, business, politics, and all fields; and progress to influence others to recognize these actions as positive and to elevate women to an equal force and contributor to our World community.

On March 8th, 2018; “On The Road With Dave” featured a custom header/banner in honor of International Women’s Day.  The background to the blog was bathed in Pantone’s Color of The Year, Ultra Violet. Purple is the official color of International Women’s Day.

IWD explains…

Internationally, purple is a color for symbolizing women. Historically, the combination of purple, green and white to symbolize women’s equality originated from the Women’s Social and Political Union in the U.K. in 1908. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity, but is no longer used due to ‘purity’ being a controversial concept. The introduction of the color yellow representing a ‘new dawn’ is commonly used to signify a second wave of feminism. Thus purple with green represents traditional feminism, purple with yellow represents progressive contemporary feminism.
