“A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let's all choose to challenge ourselves. How will you help forge a gender- equal world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.” (Internationalwomensday.com)
On March 8 we officially celebrate International’s Women’s Day to commemorate accomplishments by women around the globe. History has shown how women have fought for equality throughout the generations, something which continues to this very day.
The achievements of women across the globe cannot be ignored. We hear, read, and witness the struggles of women around the world as well as their conviction to facilitate change. This strong drive makes women convincing advocates to address their struggles and to find the solutions to these problems.
This year's theme for International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge. We are called to challenge stereotypes and preconceived notions towards women. Dare to stand-up against inequality and use your voice to call-out injustices experienced by women.
The time is right to #ChooseToChallenge ourselves and be free of the biases ingrained by society. Use this inner conviction to unlearn preconceived notions, and be an agent of change to educate your own community.
We join IWD in their goal to forge a gender equal world by celebrating women’s achievement and standing against inequality. Here are IWD’s mission:
As a women-led business, we value the importance of women’s role in our society. Our work as a social enterprise helps women around the world to realize their dreams and create a better life for themselves and their families.
When women are given the opportunity to thrive, their community thrives along with them. We are responsible for our own actions and thoughts. We can choose the path where we all stand side by side, as a collective, to create a more inclusive community. Stand-up, raise your hand and show your support to women worldwide.
