NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — In honor of International Women's Day, women from Nashville and beyond are celebrating virtually.

"The last 3 years we have been hosting event at the Parthethon and our focus is 100 percent women's achievement," said Lissette Delgado-Fitzgerald, IWD Nashville.

This year Nashville organizers joined forces with Cincinnati organizers to live-stream the annual event.

The four-hour broadcast this evening combined pre-recorded interviews with live appearances and performances.

"The pandemic changed how we do it but we moving forward nonetheless," Delgado-Fitzgerald said.

Discussions focused on a variety of topics, including gender equality, social justice and immigration.
