I feel so proud to be a woman right now, and I congratulate every woman reading this today.
Happy International Women’s Day!
Sunday 8 March 2015 marks International Women’s Day, an annual event that celebrates women’s accomplishments and promotes global gender equality.
This year’s theme is ‘make it happen’ and aims to encourage effective action for advancing and recognizing women. It focuses on women in different professional sectors; the arts, female-owned businesses, in senior leadership roles, and all aspects of working environments where gender parity has still not been achieved.
I am very glad about this year’s theme, and it comes at the right time. As women, we need to strive even more to make things happen in our chosen fields. In our families, our businesses, our careers, in leadership…. we need to aim for the best always.
To every woman out there reading this, I say, make it happen!
*I have a question for every woman reading this. What makes you proud to be a woman?
