At MIUSA, every day is International Women's Day. It's a day when we salute disabled women activists and girls throughout the world. Join us in honoring these leaders and change-makers with disabilities!

Here are some ideas to get started:

Watch and share our 4-minute video to learn how disabled women activists are protecting against gender-based violence towards women with disabilities during the pandemic.

Give the gift of our photobook, Brilliant and Resilient: Celebrating the Power of Disabled Women Activists, to a brilliant woman in your life. Order your copy here.

Rent the Brilliant and Resilient photo exhibit for your next event. Find details about hosting the exhibit.

Host a virtual watch party of The Story of WILD in English, Spanish, American Sign Language, and International Sign. Access the videos here.

Donate to our upcoming Women's Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) exchange program. Donate here. To learn more about this world-renowned program, watch a short video about WILD.

Energize! What better way to celebrate than to dance along with disabled women leaders? Watch the Loud, Proud, and Passionate® music video so we can get to 29,000 views!

Most importantly, join us in thanking the disabled women activists and allies everywhere. Thank you to our generous supporters for believing in all we do.
