Women have come a long way, but there's still so much to be done, across so many issues, from tackling oppression, to empowering women with job skills, to preparing them to lead global organizations
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 8, 2011
As part of its ongoing commitment to encouraging and rewarding positive actions, the online community DailyFeats announced today a special campaign in honor of International Women's Day, sponsored by Monster.com, to reward members for actions that celebrate and advocate for women. Participate in the campaign now by visiting http://womensday.dailyfeats.com.
DailyFeats.com now offers two new actions, !supportwomen and !breaktheceiling, for members to check in. !supportwomen urges people to contribute to the ongoing cause of women's rights and well-being, both by celebrating the tremendous advancements made over the past 100 years and by addressing the persistent issues of violence, exclusion, and repression that still affect women around the world. !breaktheceiling asks members to contribute to greater representation of women in the workplace, whether by living as a female professional role model, or by pushing for fairer hiring and wage practices at their employers. Each of these actions, or feats, can be checked in for points at DailyFeats, which can then be redeemed for real rewards.
“Women have come a long way, but there’s still so much to be done, across so many issues, from tackling oppression, to empowering women with job skills, to preparing them to lead global organizations," said Lise Poulos, EVP and chief administrative officer, Monster Worldwide. “We believe that every person can make a difference, and we are pleased to collaborate with DailyFeats in inspiring people to take action, large or small, to advance opportunity for women around the world.”
Built on the principle that "doing good should be rewarding," DailyFeats offers a place for people to share their positive actions (known as feats) that foster good health, improve financial security, reduce stress, strengthen communities, enrich connections with family and friends, and more. Members connect with one another locally and around the globe, finding the inspiration and resolve to be healthier and happier while also working toward real rewards, and connecting with DailyFeats' partners -- such as Monster.com -- who share the mission of making good actions easy, fun, and rewarding.
"None of us would live in the world we enjoy today if not for the tremendous contributions made by women," added Veer Gidwaney, CEO of DailyFeats, "yet all too often, still, women are marginalized or treated unequally. This is unacceptable, and DailyFeats is committed to building a world where women get the respect and opportunities they deserve, by encouraging and incentivizing everyone to do their part."
In the coming weeks, DailyFeats will continue to honor Women's History Month and the spirit of International Women's Day by celebrating the past, present, and future accomplishments of women -- including the small but significant accomplishments checked in every day by DailyFeats members -- and by pushing for greater social change.
DailyFeats (http://www.dailyfeats.com) is the online community that rewards and celebrates doing good. DailyFeats members collect points for doing simple but meaningful feats that benefit the body, mind, home and community. Points can then be redeemed for exciting real-world rewards, including everything from discounts at local businesses to savings from national brands. Doing good is easy, fun and rewarding at DailyFeats.
