International Women’s Day
Each year on March 8 we celebrate International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global holiday that grew out of efforts to promote women’s rights in the early 20th century. On IWD, we celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. While we recognize, and celebrate, the progression in advancing women’s rights we must also acknowledge that there is still work to do. Everyone everywhere can play a part in continuing to forge women’s equality.
In recognition of IWD, we’d like to highlight some data on women in real estate. According to the National Association of REALTORS (NAR), women have comprised the majority of REALTORS since 1978 and as of 2021, represent 65% of their membership.
