Empowering words from empowering women on International Women's Day
8th of March marks International Women's Day. A day dedicated to encouraging all people to actively celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness about women's equality, rights and so much more.
The first women's day was celebrated in 1909, which came about after over 15,000 women took to the streets of New York demanding, shorter working hours, better pay, and voting rights. While we have come far, there is still a long way to go.
The theme for International Women's Day 2021 is #ChoosetoChallenge, which is advocating each and every one of us to think carefully about our thoughts and actions and how we can work together to eliminate gender inequality and begin celebrating women's achievements.
To get the ball rolling below are some inspirational and empowering words you can start sharing with the women in your life, whether that be your mum, sister, wife, girlfriend, best friend, or colleague.
