One of the questions that popped into my mind today with it being Women’s Day is, when is Men’s Day. Why isn’t there a day that celebrates the opposite sex. I mean for all the obvious reasons women are pretty awesome beings 😀 lol, but its deeper than that. When we look back through history and even in the modern day and note all of the inequality, hardships, injustice that women have gone and go through daily its rightly so that a day is dedicated to recognising how strong, resilient, persistant and powerful we really are.
Although it will take more than setting aside a day of recognition to truly recognise and take strides toward making life for women in the workplace and in society that little bit fairer, maybe its a step in the right direction. Maybe recognising women, what we do, how we do it etc. creates a day of reflection in some way. Maybe it doesn’t. Maybe its just there to keep us sweet (slightly pessimistic I know).
Things have improved for women but there is a long way to go to truly create a world where women are truly recognised for all that we do. That time I believe is coming and days like this are a reminder of that.
So today women lets keep encouraging, supporting and empowering each other.
Happy International Women’s Day!!!
