We especially honor today the hundreds of women we have collaborated with over 35 years to create One Of A Kind 3-dimensional commemorative collages. Your vision, persistence, creativity and resourcefulness have been invaluable to the artwork. We remember each one of you with amazing memories!

It’s amazing that IWD was first observed by New York City in 1909. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 become a national holiday there. It was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Today we salute One Of A Kind women who have embodied dynamic leadership, succeeding to achieve gender equality in their professions.
