Yes Girl! International Women’s Day March 8th

With just a few days standing between today and March 8, I thought that my personal first post of this month should be dedicated to women around the world. Even when we feel down, even when we want to give up, even when we feel like everyone is against us we shall all remember one thing: We are worth it, no matter what!

A SHORT WALK THROUGH HISTORY

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights. After the Socialist Party of America organised a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations. Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood – source

WHAT ARE WE CELEBRATING 

  • Civil awareness day
  • Women and girls day
  • Anti-sexism day
  • Anti-Discrimination Day

I believe that everyone should be loved and treated with respect. I believe that each parent should teach their sons to respect and applaud a girl success and vice versa. We all should encourage one another no matter the sex, skin color, beliefs or sexual orientation. We should put the jealousy aside, because we all have a special place in this world and no one is going to take it!

I know that we, as women, have to work hard every day because there are still people who think we won’t manage. There are still men that think they are better. There are still women who try every day to bring their own down, but the thing is there is always going to be someone there. It might not be a certain person.

It might even be you trying to take you down, saying that you can’t or you’re not good enough, but if you are not going to cheer for yourself, don’t expect anyone else to do it.

So go and give your mom some nice flowers, give them to your friend or your colleague that maybe got promoted before you. Support each other because if you are going to promote health and jealousy you are definitely going to receive hate and jealousy.

Spread the good vibes every day not only on March 8th!
