This month, we celebrated women all across the globe and their contributions to humanity throughout the many lives and generations we’ve spent on this good Earth. HAPI women were recently featured in The Atlantic for their steadfast willingness to make a difference in the country of the Philippines where secular and humane values are often at odds with the highly religious stance of most of its population.

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
