INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
In 1920, women earned the right to vote. In 1974, single and divorced women were finally able to get a credit card without needing a male cosigner.
We’ve come a long way, and this year we are celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8th.
While we’ve made so many strides, this day reminds us that there is still a long way to go to ensure equality for all women everywhere. Take time today to appreciate the women in your life and the hard work they do.

Barring a worst-case scenario of full invasion and severe sanctions, economic and financial market impacts should be manageable.

Photography has been a passion of Bruce’s since he was young. One of his first jobs at age 13, was working in a camera store after school.
