Celebrating International Women
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Friday is International Women's Day, a day to honor the achievements of women past and present.

This day has been observed to celebrate women's political, economic and social accomplishments since the early 1900's.

In some regions the day is used for men to express their love for women similar to Mother's Day. In other regions the struggles of women worldwide are examined in a hopeful manner.

To celebrate International Women's Day we're taking a look at a celebrity inspiring girls to look for jobs in science related fields.

With the jobs market just beginning to turn around the U.S. Department of Commerce says the place to find work is in STEM fields or science, technology, engineering and math.

There's a push to get more girls involved.
