Sorority Pride. That's what International Badge Day is all about. Credit Alpha Sigma Alpha alumnus, Nora Ten Broeck with sparking the idea. In 1996 she wrote an article about wearing her sorority pin to work one day.
The following year, 1997, the National Panhellenic Conference set aside a day for women throughout the world to wear their sorority badges or Greek letters in a celebration of sisterhood. The month of March was chosen because of two other significant women's events. March celebrates National Women's History Month and International Women's Day. The 14th annual International Badge Day will be celebrated on March 7, 2011.
