The Reluctant Therapist: Rethinking our national holidays

Mar 5, 2019

March 8 is International Women's Day—formally celebrated around the world since 1977, but recognized in many forms since the early 1900s. Although International Women's Day is a holiday in many parts of the world, it goes widely unnoticed in the United States, aside from its inclusion in Women's History Month, proclaimed by President Barak Obama in 2011. Should there be a newly-designated federal holiday celebrating women? Or a particularly outstanding woman? Tune in for a conversation with Elizabeth Barrett, the Reluctant Therapist, about taking time to honor and recognize those people and events who have most shaped U.S. history, and the mental health benefits of a day of remembrance.
