  International Women's Day is a holiday with millions of people participating in thousands of events around the world for 104 years - and celebrated annually by the United Nations. Four years ago two Saratoga residents set out to honor the day and its history with the first NY Celebrates Women statewide event.

One Woman. One World. will be held in Saratoga Springs on International Women’s Day, March 8th.

Ruth Fein and Joanne Yepsen are partners in Critical Needs Now, who work primarily with not-for-profits and together produce this event. Joanne is also, of course, the Mayor of Saratoga Springs.
