Press The President Celebrates International Women’s Day

On March 8th, citizens across the globe will celebrate International Women’s Day. This practice has been in place since Russian women first observed the holiday in 1913 on the eve of World War I in a campaign for peace. Although equality for women has come a long way both in the U.S. and globally, there is still much more to be done. This March, in addition to celebrating women, Press the President is asking writers to speak out on issues they are passionate about and raise awareness about how much work still needs to be done.


“Fourteen million young women are forced into marriage at age 13 to men average age 37. One in nine girls are married before they turn 15. The leading cause of death for girls age 15-19 is childbirth,” said the Founder of Press the President. “These are horrifying facts and yet so few people are aware of them. It is time for Americans to push Congress and the President on supporting bills that will save lives and ultimately makes this a better world for women to grow-up in. It is not a question of whether or not to support programs that combat these issues, it’s a question of how. Writing for Press the President and getting the word out is a start.”


Press the President is a worldwide forum for unfiltered debate about U.S. issues that affect the globe. The site’s founders have created a space where writers can express their opinions freely. Americans are often criticized as not having enough of a political voice. Press the President provides a platform for people who want to make their voices heard from the White House to Main Street. Online visitors can share their views at or visit our Facebook page at to join in our weekly debates.


In addition to writing about these issues, Americans can join The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), a global research institute with headquarters in Washington, D.C., for an upcoming event at The National Press Club. Event Details are below:
