Apple Retail Stores Celebrating Upcoming International Women's Day With Today at Apple Sessions

In celebration of International Women's Day, set to take place on March 8, Apple is hosting a series of "She Creates" workshops that will be held at Apple retail stores from March 1 to March 31.


According to Apple, there will be hands-on sessions that "explore new perspectives" using iPad, iPhone, and Mac, along with opportunities to share ideas with others and learn from inspiring female creators.

There will be sessions on creating AR experiences, learning product skills, and more, along with unique sessions at various Apple locations around the world.

At Apple Union Square in San Francisco, for example, there will be a live performance by indie electronica artist Ah-Mer-Ah-Su on March 17, while Apple Fifth Avenue will feature a March 11 music session with drummer Madame Gandhi, Apple Antara will host a photo session with award winning photographer Yvonne Venegas, and Apple Covent Garden will host a drawing session with The Other Box, celebrating people of color and underrepresented backgrounds in creative industries.

9to5Mac compiled a list that features all of the retail locations that will host notable special events.

Other local events can be found by visiting Apple's Today at Apple website, which lists events and store sessions by location. Last year, Apple held other celebrations for International Women's Day, such as a special Apple Watch Activity Challenge, so we could also see similar events this year.

Huh? Every day is a straight white men day... :confused:

Yeah. Every day is just a new opportunity to remind everyone that white men (who built almost everything around you) are bad. And if one happens to be straight, god forbid, they're basically Hitler.



Are your pupils adjusting alright after being under that rock for the last 2000 years?

Sorry, but I haven't lived in the last 2000 years. Either way, please send me all the privileges you claim that I have.

That's not the case. As a straight white male, no one has ever credited me for anything mostly. Especially not when you are 5'6". Truth is, in a western society women are the most privileged and protected. It's all about women here, women there, black people here, black people there, same goes for gay and trans people and minorities. Please focus on the real issues. We are all equal, no need to feel entitled.

I'm not saying you are, but many others definitely are.
