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”.
