International Women’s Day is on Saturday March 8.
For those of you that don’t know about the day, it is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.
This makes it one extremely powerful day! A day in which women should be celebrated. This year’s theme is INSPIRING CHANGE.
“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights” Gloria Steinem
That is why I believed that this day deserved some attention (which I always find lacking in the news). Women are the cornerstone of society and contribute so much to everyone’s daily lives. For me, it will be a day of reflection and a day to learn and appreciate the challenges and struggles that other women are experiencing in the world.
So I wanted to share some of the best three ways to Recognize International Women’s Day on March 8:
1. Let everyone you know (or don’t know) that March 8th is International Women’s Day
2. Find a woman who had inspired change in this world and learn more about her.
3. Celebrate the day – in a way which is special and honors all of the women in the world
If you are like me, you are hooked Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, etc. and I encourage you to use those mediums to shout it (metaphorically) to the world that it’s International Women’s Day on March 8.
Follow https://twitter.com/womensday @womensday@UN_Women @WomenforWomen @SayNO_Unite @UN and all and any other relevant group that is promoting the day. You won’t believe the information you will find in all of those tweets. Its amazing (and can uplift the spirit) and maybe cause people to take action against the injustices.
For my second best of three – I wanted to focus on a woman or women that truly inspiring or inspired change. Find one and research them, Find out all about them. Make them a project that you want to work on.
For my last best, I think that this is a day that needs to be celebrated. If you are a woman – make it a special day when you do something for yourself and others. If you have children, let them know about the day and make it a celebration of women – find a way to celebrate it – make it a tradition in your family. If you are a man, you can celebrate it too.
Dedicated to all of the women in the world.
