Tomorrow is International Women's Day, a day all about celebrating women and their achievements (economic, political, scientific, social, etc) around the world. Women create a breathtaking kaleidoscope of beauty, diversity, and culture even in light of our revered differences. My hope is that we stand hand-in-hand, intertwined by our respect and the knowledge that we are better together.
International Women’s Day is also a time to focus on places and situations where women's rights, equality, health, and safety still have a long way to go. We are in the middle of a movement: women saying, “no more” and rising to become the heroes of their own stories. They are fighting for their themselves and leading communities by claiming respect for their hearts, their bodies, and their minds.
This isn't your average blog. THINK OF IT LIKE THE BRITISH LIBRARY, EXCEPT WAY SASSIER.
