9 Highlights From International Women's Day
For the week surrounding International Women's Day, women's issues get extra attention. At the first National Women's Day in the United States in 1909, women were concerned about working conditions and the right to vote. Here’s what we're talking about in 2019 on Women’s Day.

1. Marvel Comics finally has a female superhero. It has been 14 years since Marvel Comics had a female superhero lead her own film (and the last one apparently didn’t go so well). Deliberately timed to coincide with International Women’s Day, Captain Marvel will open this Friday and star actress Brie Larson.

2. For the first time ever, an all-female crew will conduct a spacewalk. NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will carry out the spacewalk at the end of this month. Another woman, Kristen Facciol will be on the console at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston supporting their mission.


3. Only six countries in the world give women and men equal legal work rights. The World Bank found that Belgium, Denmark, France, Latvia, Luxembourg and Sweden were the only countries in the world to have a perfect score for gender equality in laws affecting work. The good news is that this represents a big improvement over a decade ago when no country received a perfect score for equal legal rights. The bad news is we still have a long way to go.
