Today is International Women’s Day! This global celebration of women began more than 100 years ago, per the United Nations. It started to build support for the women’s rights movements in the early 1900s. It played a part in women gaining the right to vote, and as you may know, it continues to support women in political and economic endeavors today.
So, what can you do to show your support for other women, as the UN says, “without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political’? So much!
Hang with The Girls
It’s Wednesday, a.k.a a perfect day for a happy hour with your girlfriends. Get together and talk about all your amazing accomplishments in all areas of your life. That’s what today is all about.
It can be easy to feel like we don’t make a difference or aren’t being heard. But donating to organizations that can put your dollars to good use is a great way to get involved and make your mark.
When was the last time you called your government representatives and told them how much women’s rights matter to you? Today is a great day to tell someone in a position of authority how much you care. No time to call? Emails are good, too!
Be the Change
All you have to do all day to celebrate women is to be the amazing woman you are. By simply being yourself, getting through your surely crazy day, appreciating the challenges you have overcome as well as those other amazing women have overcome, you are celebrating in the best way possible. Show your support however you want on the outside, but don’t forget to show your support on the inside, too. Take time to appreciate yourself. And take time to appreciate the women who have come before us and how far we’ve all come as a group. Because that’s what we are — a group. We’re all in this together.
