International Women’s Day
By: Ms. K
Today is International Women’s Day! Being a woman, we carry so much on our shoulders yet we always strive for excellence, by breaking boundaries and reaching higher limits.
Youtube has started a #DearMe campaign: Asking women: “What advice would you give your younger self?
I would tell my younger self to believe in yourself and value your self worth. Growing up I didn’t value myself and it took me down a road of self pity and falling for the wrong person. I would tell her to take more challenges and to not be afraid of failure, or rejection.
“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights” Gloria Steinem
We have come a long way from women suffrage, gaining the rights to vote, but we are not done. We still need to fight for more equality, having a stronger voice, escaping traditional roles that society places on females. We need to support and stand by other inspiring women. We need to create a safe haven of respect and pride.
