A wise woman once said, “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish”.
Marie Curie, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst are a few of many women who changed the world. 15,000 women fought with one voice for women’s rights in March 1908 which started the evolution of international women’s day. Clara Zetkin in 1910 at an International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen came up with the idea for international women’s day celebrated annually on the 8th of March. The inauguration of Kamala Harris as the first black Asian-American female US vice president in 2021 was another big step toward our goal.
This year’s theme is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” #BreakTheBias, is geared towards raising awareness and rallying for gender equality. Today we celebrate the achievements of women, as a reminder that great women marched for a single goal, “gender equality”.
A world full of empowered women isn’t one where men are marginalized, it’s a world where everyone thrives. It's with utmost honor that we celebrate our She-roes today. Together we can create a world where difference is valued and honored, together we can forge women's equality, Join us the fight today to #BreakTheBias.
