At Proud To be Me, we love uplifting and recognising women. And what better way to do that than by encouraging women of all ages, race and class on International Women’s Day.
Women have triumphed and accomplished so much. As a gender, we have done so well, not to mention the specific struggles women from different demographics have successfully travail through.
Every woman deserves the same human treatment as men. Our gender should not be an excuse to be treated less, paid less, not employed, not accepted, seen as inept and incapable. Our body and womanly abilities are not to exploited, abused or taken advantage of. But they are to be loved, appreciated and respected.
International Women’s Day give us the chance to do that. To celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This beautiful day does not exist to emasculate men, or beat them down, but rather recognise women and celebrate them. Hail them for the great things they have accomplished.
You should care about International Women’s Day because you are a woman and as a woman, every day you are conquering, completing and achieving.
