International Women’s Day takes place every year on March 8th. This year’s theme of #BeBoldForChange is a call for action to help forge a more gender inclusive world. It’s a perfect opportunity for women to volunteer their time and talents to support organizations focused on women’s issues such as income inequality, education, domestic abuse and equal rights. Since change begins from the ground up, Nielsen Scarborough ranked the top markets for women who have done volunteer work in the past year, to show which communities promise to lead the charge through the power of volunteering.
