Happy Marvelous Miraculous Monday! Happy International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month! This month join the #ChooseToChallenge injustice, bias, or inequality relating to women globally.
All around the world, International Women’s Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality. Much has been done in the world to highlight the fact that woman must enjoy the equal rights, opportunities and respect as men do, the International Women’s Day is perhaps among the few days in the year during which the importance of woman is recognized, glorified and celebrated.
International Women’s Day 2021 Theme: #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021.A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let’s all choose to challenge. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organizations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
Various organizations identify their own International Women’s Day theme, specific to their local context and interests.
So today think what action you will do to challenge false and negative stereotypes, images and thinking about women. Think about it. Maybe you will challenge bias. Think about what your target audience will be. Will it be a specific community, family and friends, or certain employees? Then think about what action you can take. Will you make a video, speak to students at a local school or launch or project or initiative?
So today and this week encourage a woman to collaborate through shared thinking and invite colleagues to take action such as to think about and/or commit to progressive actions. Maybe encourage them to collectively commit to #ChooseToChallenge.
Have great day and remember to #ChooseToChallenge.
