International Women's Day is Wednesday, March 8, and this year's theme is all about activism. The organizers of the day — who are activists themselves — want you to #BeBoldForChange, challenging yourself to help effect positive change in the world. Whether it's in your community or on a global scale, everyone can mold the world for the better through activism, but it's not always easy. Activism takes persistence, patience and organization, which aren't qualities that come naturally to everyone. That's why we've asked eight young activists from across the world how they go about making change. With these tips, you'll be on your way to making the world a better place in no time.
