International Women’s Day, celebrating She!
A woman is beyond what words can define, she is beautiful, elegant, passionate, adventurous, fearless, caring and extraordinary. There is no woman like another, and each is radiant in a unique way. International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, and action. It’s a day celebrated to remember the strength and remarkable works done by women. The ladies in our lives hold a special place in our hearts and lives, and without them, we would not have the dreams and happiness we do.
International Women’s Day, is celebrated around the globe on the 8th of March every year, to celebrate the achievements of women. Paying tribute to the contribution of women in the social, economic, cultural and political space, the day also furthers the cause of gender equality.
Honoring women and their efforts have been happening in almost all communities since times immemorial, in different formats. The official celebration of the International Women’s Day was first recorded in 1911, where the event was supported by over one million people in Europe. Today, the day is celebrated across the globe with zest and fervor. It is a day to remember the wonderful contribution women make to our society and life. Our sisters, wives, mothers, aunts, cousins and friends, these women, whom we know, love and adore, have raised us to be where we are. The women in leadership positions, teachers, role models, game changers are an inspiration to all.
Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, and fighter for equal rights, once said – “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”
A woman is timeless and powerful. On Women’s Day, we celebrate the strength, determination and a selfless spirit of each magnificent woman around us, and let’s make every day International Women’s Day.
