Mercury is in retrograde AND it’s Women’s History Month?! That almost distracts us from our current NYC weather.

For this month’s #MustDo in NYC, a roundup of events to celebrate the feminine energy in your life and the drive to break that glass ceiling among other not-to-miss happenings this March.

Immerse Yourself in the World of Women

WOW – Women of the World Festival, a series of performances, talks, comedy, workshops, and music celebrating the power of women and girls from Harlem and around the world. Head to the Apollo Theatre to join participants including Educator and Activist Angela Davis; Musician Alice Smith;  Finance Expert Suze Orman; White House Correspondent April Ryan; Poet Nikki Giovanni and more.

Tuesday – Sunday, March 12th – 17th, hours vary

Get Colorful

NYC goes all out for Holi to celebrate the coming of spring, the joy of friendship, and equality for all. You’ll want to wear white so you can cover yourself and friends with rainbow powders while you dance your heart out. This particular celebration is 21+ but there are plenty of other Holi celebrations happening around the city for families.

Saturday, March 16th, 1pm to 8pm
