We are a day late, but wanted to celebrate International Women’s Day nonetheless. INGCO International is Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE/ WBENC). It is woman-owned, operated and controlled by President Ingrid Christensen.

About International Women’s Day:

When: 8 March

Where: Everywhere

What:   International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.

Why:   Suffragettes campaigned for women’s right to vote. The word ‘Suffragette’ is derived from the word “suffrage” meaning the right to vote. International Women’s Day honors the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Women’s Day event was run in 1911.
