This International Women’s Day let’s celebrate the courage and fierceness of every woman who stood up for herself and demanded equality. Let’s rejoice in every law change and cultural change that has been made for #BalanceForBetter.
Girlfriends, let’s sweat together to make these ripples of progress into giant waves of reformation.
Never for a second think you are alone in your struggles. You have half the world rooting for you and cheering you on.
Here are 10 powerful quotes from 10 powerful women to guide you this women’s day.
Last but not least, here is what I want to say to all the naysayers who ask do we still need an International Women’s Day –
Yes, gone are the days when women couldn’t vote or buy property. But, International Women’s Day is not another frivolous day in the long list of days we celebrate. A lot has changed over the decades and women are empowered today like never before.
But here are some hard facts.
Globally, the number of educated women is less than women. There are several countries in the world where parents overlook the daughter’s need for education in favor of their sons. Violence against women is still accepted as normal. The victim blaming trend which has robbed the voice of many women against violence perpetrated on them is still rampant. Boring stereotypes are the norm in our society.
So, yeah! We kinda still need to celebrate women all around the world to force the world to see these inequalities and take measures to rectify it.
