On 8th March every year, it is the International Women’s Day. It is not just another story about the struggle of a woman for equality but it is one collective effort to all who care about human rights
– para phrased from Gloria Steinem
True to nature, women was once a home bred figure to be protected under the wings of the husband or the male of the family. But as time progresses and advancement of technology, era and evolution of the mind, women need to be seen as equals as well.
Personally I believe that of course it is still a privilege to be protected, provided for and be respected as a female in the society. But when one is able to pursue the knowledge, put in the same or more effort at work and stand up for the community then these need to be recognised.
We need to make it happen, the equal wage, equal recognition in arts, more females in leadership roles and growth for women who own businesses. There are many other fields to be mentioned of course but my main priority here is to get people to be aware of such arising concern and get knowledge and information of such happening.
To show our support for International Women’s Day, the theme is #PaintItPurple. you can visit : here : to find out events in your country to join in and show your support.
Why Purple? (Extracted from the International Womens Day website)
From 1908, the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in Great Britain adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green to symbolise the plight of the Suffragettes. Purple symbolised justice and dignity – two values strongly associated with women’s equality. The three colours were used for banners, flags, rosettes and badges to show solidarity.
Remember it is all in the name of goodwill and awareness.
Do share with me what are your plans this 8th March, International Women’s Day and how do you celebrate the women in your life: Mom, Sisters and Female Friends.
Till we meet again, this has been zsiti.
