"This is the 8th time that we are putting together our Annual Women's Day event.  There are so many great women out there that do remarkable things and are real pioneers.  I hope that one day we'll not need to designate a Women’s Day because there will be enough equality in the world that women and men will be able to celebrate their achievements together.  And maybe we’ll just have People's Day!" 

"We are proud to say that WOMEN’S DAY USA  has been leading the efforts to establish the International Women's Day observance in the U.S.  We salute our partnership with Congresswoman Maxine Waters which established the first ever declaration of International Women's Day signed in both houses in 1994." 

Beata Pozniak - Founder and President of WDUSA

 

"Before forming Women’s Day USA Beata single-handedly launched a campaign which resulted in the very first bill passed by the US Congress and Senate in the history of the United States officially recognizing historic International Women's Day - H.J. Resolution 316.  It's exciting to share a real american story: positive contribution of an immigrant.  She is it."

George Spiro Dibie, ASC., President of
International Cinematographers Guild

"I appreciate your work initiating the project and your active involvement in making this day a larger part of our nation's support of women here and around the world.  Thank you Beata for keeping this day alive in our nation."

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (1996)

 

"Every year Women's Day is a revelation.   The honorees who represent different ages, many nationalities and a wide variety of interests are always a great testament to the strength and courage of women.  Beata Pozniak is to be applauded for her passion and persistence in seeking greater recognition for International Women's Day."

Sarah Pillsbury, producer, "And the Band Played On",

"How to make the American Quilt?",
  "Eight MenOut", "Love Field"

 

"As we face the diverse challenge of the next century, it is more important than ever that we address the problems of violence, economic inequality, and inadequate representation in government faced by women worldwide.  In doing so, we call for a day when women's extraordinary daily contributions are celebrated - a  time when we fully recognize that it takes all people striving together, to build a just and compassionate world.  Hillary and I send our best wishes for a memorable observance."

President Bill Clinton             

 

"The Los Angeles City Commission on the Status of Women applauds you as you continue to highlight the achievements of women around the world on International Women's Day. For many years, you have promoted this day to bring Women's contributions to the forefront.  Again, congratulations and continued success."

The Los Angeles City Commission
on the Status of Women
(1998)

 

"This International Women's Day observance is to promote awareness of women's issues and to recognize the leadership roles women are playing in all areas of our society.  With your leadership, our great state can look to the future with hope - hope for a prosperous 21st century.  I applaud your efforts to strengthen the involvement of women in all areas of society and to recognize the important contributions of women throughout the history." 

Former Governor Pete Wilson (1993)

 

"Women around the world are calling on us to help them transform development to bring about equality, peace, and a healthy planet.  With your continued support, we can do just that." 

Noellen Heyzer, Director of UNIFEM (United Nations
Development Fund for Women) (1995)


"Through your efforts, you show we can make a tremendous difference.  Keep up the good work!" 

US Senator Barbara Boxer (1997)


"I'd like to thank Beata Pozniak for seeing that this day would not go by unnoticed."

US Senator Diane Feinstein (March 8, 1993)
