Hoorah for Women
Celebrating "International Women's Day is about supporting women to give voice to their visions. “Progress for women is progress for all". After 14 years and three failed attempts, the Indian Government will vote on Monday to begin the legislative process for enacting a law for women. Hopeful that a new page of history can be written on the International Women's Day. On Sunday fresh attacks were attempted on the women's reservation bill in its present form, however, it will be a landmark in the history of Indian women. International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's, a time of many versatile developments. The tradition sees men honoring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give presents as their token of appreciation.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitude in both women's and society's views about women's uniformity in all fields. Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for women' while many feminists from the 1970's know only too well the long life and difficulty of unrest in statuesque. When women are adorning more boardroom, responsible positions in work and governments, greater impartiality in their rights have increased women's position as role models in many aspects of life have gained equality.
We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, artists, sports women, you name it and they adoring very powerful positions. They even work from home and have a family, although the most complex planning, strategy and working pattern is necessary to run a home. Women have many fruitful choices. Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. So make a difference, think globally and act locally. Make everyday International Women's Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for your girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.We hear people in position admit that a "massive amount of work" remains to be done to close the pay gap between men and women. This is just one of barriers keeping women, whether they are Aboriginal women, women with disabilities, single women, single parents or women living in poverty, from realizing their full potential.
Have you ever thought of taking an average of the work and toil each woman go through globally? Many surveys and percentages in ratio and counting shows very pathetic stability and health factors . Females in many countries on average carry 20 liters of water per day over 6 km, by walking , Pregnant women in Africa are 180 times more likely to die than in Western Europe ,over 530,000 women die in pregnancy or childbirth each year ,Of 1.2 billion people living in poverty worldwide, 70% are women ,80% of the world's 27 million refugees are women ,Women own around only 1% of the world's land , Women are 2/3 of the 1 billion+ illiterate adults who have no access to basic education .Are we really celebrating International Women’s Day??
Please hug the women and girls in your life today and appreciate their worth,value and importance in our lives.
