Today as we celebrate International Women’s Day, we honor the remarkable and inspiring women leaders around the world who have paved the way for other women to accomplish their goals.  While women have made significant strides in breaking barriers, we must continue to combat gender discrimination, stand strongly against domestic violence, and fight against inequality that still exists today.  Together, we must work to build a strong foundation for the next generation of young women leaders to carry on this fight for equality.   That’s why we’re investing $20 million in our city’s young women with the Young Women’s Initiative, creating a group of strong women who will fight against injustice and make it a thing of the past.  Women are essential to our city’s success and we must continue to empower and uplift them.
