You are only as good as the people around you. I have been fortunate to have such wonderful women role models. My mother, my aunts and wonderful strong friends who speak their minds and follow their hearts.
March 8th marks an international celebration of education and empowerment. its International Women’s Day to celebrate from around the world people celebrate the economic, social, cultural and political achievements for women.
“The first IWD was held on 19 March 1911 in Germany, Austria, Denmark and further European countries. German women selected this date because in 1848 the Prussian king had promised the vote for women. Subsequently over one million leaflets calling for action on the right to vote were distributed throughout Germany before IWD in 1911.
Now IWD is always celebrated on 8 March and is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. Women in every country, often divided by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate this important date that represents equality, justice, peace and development.”
To all the amazing women I have known who have influenced, THANK YOU!
We should proud of who we are and who we will become!
