Apparently until 2015, when the Professional Association of of Diving Instructors created this holiday, there weren’t many scuba diving women. I am not sure why, nor am I sure that is correct, but for their sake, lets say that it is. The idea is to get more women scuba diving and they use this day to hold fundraisers that benefit women as well as attempting to get more women involved in the sport. The depths of the oceans do hold a lot of beauty and it is easy to see why it would appeal to someone, be they man or woman.
How to celebrate – If you are a woman, go scuba diving. Take lessons on scuba diving. Create your own awareness celebration keeping scuba diving as your theme.
