Our team is strong with so many accomplished, talented and brilliant women of real estate, and all of us are overjoyed to celebrate the International Women Day, a date that honors women’s achievements across fields, disciplines and social spheres. IWD was originally established in 1900 as part of the effort to promote equal rights and achieve universal suffrage, and is now observed by countries and nations across the globe.
Today, there are lots of ways to celebrate the IWD; here are a couple of suggestions (one contemplative and one celebratory) on how you could mark the occasion, from us at the Tracy Do Team:
Reflect on the women that have been conspicuously absent from history, and that are honored in this timely story published in the NY Times. Entitled “Overlooked”, this project commemorates remarkable women that were not given their due in their lifetimes.
Visit Silver Lake to stop by the delightful Botanica – home to a charming market and a great restaurant, to partake in their day long International Women’s Day soirée. A menu of special recipes from a few of their favorite female chefs and cookbook authors will be available — the likes of Gabrielle Hamilton, Ana Sortun, Alice Waters and Claudia Roden. There will also be a flower shop pop-up from Whit Hazen (11am-3pm), a pop-up ceramics shop from D Ceramics (11am-3pm), and a tasting of women-made wines and a glass of your favorite—at $25 for a flight of five or six (5:30-7pm), plus a free yoga classes from Love Yoga, with a portion of proceeds from the day benefiting a local women’s charity. Find the festivities at 1620 Silver Lake Blvd., more info here.
