March 2nd is the day! Will you join us?

March 2nd, 2019 is just a couple of days away.  For the past year all the  amazing vendors have been busily preparing for another wonderful Women in Wellness Expo.  The vendors are lined up and ready to go, guest speaker is set and food is planned. …all we need is you!

As always, this event will feature the amazing women from our community and surrounding areas who have dedicated their lives to living a life of purpose and healing.  Be sure to check back often to this site as updates are made on the vendors page and to find out about other events in Marmora between March 1 -8.


This year’s theme is “Balance for Better”.…better world that is.  How can we all work together to make this a more gender balanced world?  Let us know what you personally are doing or your workplace and community are doing. Are there areas you still see as needing some “work”?  Let us know!

The following is from the International Women’s Day website:

Year long activity and collaboration

The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world.

Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.

From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
The 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign runs all year long. It doesn’t end on International Women’s Day.

The campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize continuous collective action, with #BalanceforBetter activity reinforced and amplified all year.

Let’s build a gender-balanced world

Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage …

Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

Collectively we can all play a part

Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.

The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”

Motivate others

So put your hands out and STRIKE THE #BalanceforBetter POSE and make International Women’s Day YOUR day – and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.

Amplify via social media

Post your #IWD2019 message on social media with your “hands out” balance pose for a strong call-to-action for others to also help forge a #BalanceforBetter.

International Women’s Day, March 8th, 2017

Internationally, the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is BE BOLD FOR CHANGE.  It has been made very clear by comments and actions around the globe that we women have quite a ways to go in bringing equal rights and change to the world.  Regardless of what laws are in place, it takes effort and living by example to change the mindset of the communities in which we live. It is time we step up for what is right – right for all people.  Show respect, compassion, and support through our words and actions.  It is way past the talking, it now time to live what we say and believe.  If we all stand together, men and women, and demand that we are all treating equally, things will change.  What will you do to Be Bold for Change in 2017?  To learn more about other events around the globe check out the International Women’s Day website.

2016 was a Pledge for Parity

In  2016 International Women’s Day theme was Pledge for Parity.  As we take time to celebrate the advancement and achievement of women worldwide we need to understand that in reality equality and advancement has actually slowed down in many places around the world.  March 8th is recognized globally as International Women’s Day and is the perfect opportunity for men and women to come together to show support in making change…NOW!  The time has come to take the next step from talk to purposeful action.

The following is taken from International Women’s Day official website

The World Economic Forum predicted in 2014 that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. Then one year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn’t close entirely until 2133. We may wonder how much we can do individually to close the gap but research conducted by EY has shown each of us can take certain tangible actions that together make a difference.”
