“Women in Leadership”
In our day-to-day lives, women juggle so many commitments and responsibilities, deal with so much, and look fantastic while getting everything done, too!
Every day, should be celebrated as Women’s Day. However, to honour our achievements, the UN announced March 8, as International Women’s Day.
Women have had a long forged path of fighting for freedom and this day honors all the sacrifices women have made. Also, it is the day to acknowledge our courage of breaking the rigid stereotypes, and coming out as strong powerful women.
This year women’s day theme is ‘Choose To Challenge’, UN Women also issued “Women in Leadership” which means that every individual is responsible for our own actions and thoughts for a better world
The theme, further elaborates that from challenge comes change. One can call out gender bias and inequality. To seek out and celebrate the achievements of women. Together we all can create an inclusive world.
For many people, the role of women is limited to household chores only. However, this must change to zero scale as women deserve equal freedom and opportunities in everything like men. The world is moving towards gender equality. It is moving towards a balance between both men and women. A change is required and is also essential.
It is observed that men have had more advantages in every sphere of life in comparison to women since ages. However, let’s all remember we all are humans and should be treated equally with equal rights and opportunities.
On International Women’s Day, everyone appreciates the women in their lives. Everyone acknowledges the worth and significance of women in their lives, and their tremendous contribution to society as well. Be it in professional life or personal life, celebrating women is a sense of obligation to every woman in one’s life.
International Women’s Day is all about feeling self-worth and achieving the goals as per the potential. Besides that, women should gather the courage to cross all the hurdles in all the spheres of life to make a tremendous improvement.
It is a general myth in society that women-related issues are not a big deal. Many people believe that the gender gap does not exist in society and efforts by individuals are not enough and cannot bring any change to the gender gap. Let Women’s Day be all about making society realise that each individual has to work differently and changing society towards a better future.
I thank you
Happy International Women’s Day Celebrations
