Happy International Women’s Day!

Happy international women’s day everyone! Let’s all be thankful for the amazing and phenomenal women around us and before us! Women have had to fight through so much to get to where we are today and we still don’t have equality but as long as we keep fighting someday we are finally going to have equal rights.

About International Women’s Day:

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global holiday celebrated annually on March 8 as a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.

nternational Women’s Day is commemorated in a variety of ways worldwide; it is a public holiday in several countries, and observed socially or locally in others to celebrate and promote the achievements of women.

The UN observes the holiday in connection with a particular issue, campaign, or theme in women’s rights. In some parts of the world, IWD still reflects its political origins, being marked by protests and calls for radical change; in other areas, particularly in the West, it is largely sociocultural and centred on a celebration of womanhood.

  1. Well, first and foremost, I’d like to thank my mother – it’s been nearly three years since she died but I think about her every day. In fact, I’d like to thank ALL mothers for doing that incredibly amazing thing they do with their bodies when they make us – actual humans – inside of them and then look after and nurture us in childhood before gently guiding us into adulthood – sometimes against all the odds. You’re all amazing. Actually, even if you’re not a mother, you’re still amazing because this world desperately needs your feminine energy. So basically, I’d like to thank all women for giving us life and generally making this world a better place. G.xxx

  2. My Mom and both my maternal and paternal Grandmothers who overcame racism, discrimination and Jim Crow so that my brother and I could have a better life. God Rest their Beloved Souls.

    1. That is so amazing I can’t even imagine what they must have gone through. It is so important to remember women like them who have fought for equality so that we can have a better life today.

  3. The women who do all the unpaid work of the world without which the world would fall apart, often after already working full time jobs: the care-giving, caretaking, cleaning, cooking and mending, budgeting, the true environmentalists who don’t even know how much of their diligence is a model for us all, the women who have knowledge that is neglected and belittled by the bastions of power and “formal education”. I am grateful that women are shouting out for their mothers and grandmothers. It’s still hard but it was harder for them.

    1. Absolutely the women who do all the things that people don’t notice but are so important are so amazing! They really keep the world together without taking any credit for it! It was definitely harder back then for our mothers and grandmothers but they fought for us.
