“You are braver than your mother / and I am not a timid woman,” writes Marilyn Hacker in “Iva’s Pantoum.” These times in our country and in our world call for bravery and boldness in the fight for inclusion and equality.

Tomorrrow is International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. International Women’s Day is also a time to challenge biases, create opportunities for gender parity, and call for gender awareness on a global scale. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange.
