International Women’s Day is celebrated on the 8th March every year to honour the achievements of women and to continue to promote women’s equality. The first International Women’s Day gathering occurred more than 100 years ago in 1911 with over a million people attending rallies pushing for women’s rights. Women have achieved so much and have came so far since the first meeting in 1911, but there is still further to go. People of all genders, cultures and beliefs come together to stand up for women’s rights, in hope to change the world so that the woman of the future can live to their full potential.
Over the last 100 years, woman have contributed to the change that we see today, in society and cultures. Woman have challenged rights to vote, to work in science, to participate in sports, for laws for underage marriage, they have encouraged peace and much more. There are many woman who have succeed to make change happen over the years, and woman of today who are inspiring further change because woman all over the world are still experience inequity simply because of their gender.
Be the change. Encourage and support women, listen to their music, read their books, stand by them, don’t judge, put a stop to gossip and body shame. Find a way to celebrate the woman who inspire you. #ChooseToChallenge
Have a nice Day!
