NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- McDonald's has flipped its famous Golden Arches upside down to form a "W" in honor of International Women's Day.

The logo was changed on the company's website, social media accounts as well as a restaurant in Lynwood, California.

Other locations are flipping the arches on their packaging and employees' hats.

"We recognize the extraordinary contribution of women," the company said. "From employees and franchisees, to suppliers and community partners, to our customers, we are inspired by your strength and leadership."

The company added that six out of 10 of its restaurant managers in the U.S. are women.
