I don’t know about you, but I feel like this year is just flying!
Last week was busy with lots of exciting events. International Women Day was the highlight of the week and then, follows March Break.
On March 8, 2014 we celebrated International Women’s Day, it has been observed since the early 1900s.
That was a time of great unrest and debate among women, as they struggled against inequality and oppression.
The first time the day was officially observed was in 1909, when it was celebrated on the last Sunday in February.
The United Nations launched a new campaign ahead of the 2014 International Women’s Day, called http://heforshe.org/
It calls for men to help bring about the reduction of discrimination against women. Prominent men such as actors Matt Damon and Antonio Banderas; and United Nations Chief Ban Ki-Moon recorded videos for the campaign.
“It’s an objective fact, that if you want to solve some of these huge, kind of bigger problems of extreme poverty, you have to include the women,” said Damon, who has also founded Water.org, a non-profit group that provides access to safe water and sanitation in Africa, south Asia, and Central America. “They’re the ones who will get it done.”
“This is a moment when we review past achievements and look ahead to the challenges that remain, as well as to untapped potential and opportunities. In moving forward, we must ensure that women’s empowerment and gender equality stand at the heart of all of our work to craft a better future.”
But aside of all, I personally would like to remind us that, every single woman, fighting their own battle, whether as a stay at home mom, work at home mom, professional, CEO, every woman, is at the end , the architect of the society. We have the power to create, nurture and transform and that, that is worth more than one day in the calendar. All my respect to the women in my life, those who inspire me, educated me, my friends and family….Love you all!
I will be talking a little bit about the events I attended on my next posts! Thank you for reading!
