It’s that time of the year again, International Women’s Day. The day was created to represent female empowerment and rights, while creating a pride to be female. March 8, the official date of the holiday, has been celebrated world wide, but this year has contained the biggest celebration so far.
The fast food chain McDonald’s swapped their famous yellow arch logo on many of their signs, turning it upside down so instead of an “M” for McDonald’s, it is a “W” for women. The chicken fast food chain KFC, or Kentucky Fried Chicken, changed their logo for the day by making their Colonel Sanders logo into a girl, a controversial yet celebrated decision by many.
The day has also been made infamous for the number of times the holiday “International Men’s Day” has been looked up. On Google, 3/5 of the search “When is International Men’s Day?” has been asked on International Women’s Day. (Hint, it’s November 19, mark your calendars, guys.)
