8th of March is celebrated all over the world as an International Women’s Day. It’s a day when we celebrate women, their social, economic, cultural and political achievements and also it’s a great opportunity to talk about gender equality. International Women’s Day has been celebrated since the early 1900’s and still is very popular in many countries. It’s a perfect time to bring attention to every woman in your life and outside your inner circle to observe and honor their qualities, accomplishments, sacrifices, successes and challenges. This year I decided to join in celebration by taking part in Be Bold For Change campaign (#BeBoldForChange) run by International Women’s Day website.
The idea behind the campaign is simple- celebrate by being bold in taking action, in their words- “For International Women’s Day 2017, we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange. Call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world- a more inclusive, gender equal world”.
Choose any of the below actions and spread the word!

What an amazing idea! You see, I was bold last year since I was on chemotherapy and I think that it would be very helpful for many women who struggle with cancer to understand that they are not alone and that there are many women that give their own battle with difficult diseases but they win! Thanks for this useful post! I really appreciate it!
Wow Rebecca, so glad you are well now and you beat the cancer! Thanks for sharing!
You definitely have something to celebrate!
I will be bold and campaign against violence! #BeBoldForChange What an inspirational campaign, and an important day. Women rock! Thank you so much for sharing this — I’ll be sure to pass it along.
Awesome!!! Thanks Whitney for joining the campaign and spreading the word! 🙂
