International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
The theme for 2020 is Each for Equal, encouraging people to actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.
I wanted to share some of my favourite words from wonderful women….
· “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for” – Oprah Winfrey
· “Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity or your curiosity. Its your place in the world, it’s your life” – Dr Mae Jemison
· “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt
· “A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman” – Melinda Gates
Every woman is strong in their own unique way. Powerful. A nurturer. A fighter. A warrior. Let’s remember to celebrate each other and our own victories - today and every day.
