Please join me in celebrating women! We, as women, should be celebrated and worshipped every day of the year. However, since that is not so much happening (at least not in my house), I propose we whoop it up in a huge way TODAY.
Go us! My dearest women friends, you totally and completely rock! I love all you do and appreciate your phenomenal-ness.
If you are unaware of the history of International Women's Day (IWD), here is a brief paragraph from the International Women's Day website:
International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's. . . .
Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women's craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more.
Many global corporations have also started to more actively support IWD by running their own internal events and through supporting external ones. For example, on 8 March search engine and media giant Google some years even changes its logo on its global search pages. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing in status. The United States even designates the whole month of March as 'Women's History Month'.
So make a difference, think globally and act locally! Make everyday International Women's Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.
