McDonald's flips golden arches to celebrate International Women's Day

McDonald's will actually turn its logo upside down on all its digital channels such as Twitter and Instagram on Thursday

McDonald's global chief diversity officer, Wendy Lewis, said flipping the iconic arches is to celebrate women everywhere on International Women's Day on Thursday.

In southern Arizona, LeAnn Richards, owner of five restaurants in Nogales, Sierra Vista, Douglas, Benson, and Wilcox, will participate in the event.

The employee behind the change was Patricia Williams, the franchisee, and she was not alone in the celebration.

According to Stingley, "when women are empowered, the standard of living for the entire community is lifted because that is just who women are". "In the USA we take pride in our diversity and we are proud to share that today, six out of 10 restaurant managers are women".
