IWD | Why I Celebrate Women’s Day 💜 |

• One day the world stops spinning for women.

• One day women, girls all over the world get to use a card.

• One freaking day, we get to walk around getting compliments and flowers from loved ones and strangers.

Sometimes I think what the heck, we deserve to be celebrated by men every single day but other times I have to consciously remind myself how far women have come and to be celebrated.

So WOMEN, here are a few reasons to keep celebrating yourself and the many women around the globe;

  • VOTING RIGHTS

First celebrated in 1909 in New York – one year after a women’s union strike in the city for voting rights – International Women’s Day spread predominantly through communist countries and began to spark demonstrations all over the world.

  • EQUAL PAY

The aim of today is for women to have equal pay – since this is still a problem in our society, so today is still being celebrated every year.

Example: Women earn 14% less than men in the UK. Last year the #MeToo campaign also grew tremendously, after a lot of women started speaking out about sexual harassment.

  • WOMEN’s STRENGTH

Our strength as women isn’t only measured by how much shit we can withstand before we are broken but by how much shit we can take even after being broken and still walk around with a big smile on our faces.

Examples: Child bearing, motherhood…etc!

  • PERKS

Can we talk about the numerous perks and gifts attached to women’s day? It sucks when you don’t get a call, a text or even a candy as a minute appreciation that this world would be completely bland without women in this world.

Recently I was reminded of how much effort we as women have to put in just to keep our shit together….something 98% men will never understand. Walking around and making quick decisions and at the same time consulting with your EMOTION, WILL, BODY, MIND, SPIRIT and still managing fine has got to be one of the most misunderstood things about women.

To all the women out there, adding flavor to this world, achieving things and breaking boundaries locally and internationally, I say well-done, congratulations and cheers 🥂to more heights.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s DAY💪🏾🏳️‍🌈

  2. I love the article, and how much it states the fact that women have come a long way and I wish them more success in the many spheres that are yet to be completely conquered by them 😉. Women need to celebrate themselves every freaking day and not have to wait for any one else to celebrate them. I believe women are influencers and think more accurately because they easily link the humane side with what seems to logic which is lacking in this world hence all the chaos. I want to give a special shoutout to women who have not tolerated being in a toxic environment and also to the ones who have but found the strength to leave. I hope to see women take up more space in the political and business spheres . To all the women reading this, I wish you a very happy women’s day. 💐🌹🌷🌺
