Every day should be International Women’s Day
Today, Friday 8th March is an important day in the history of civilization and the modern world. It is the day that brings to our collective memory the struggle of women around the world to secure their rights and shape more equitable societies. We celebrate this day not only to recognize and appreciate the contribution of women all over the world, but also to reflect on the work yet to be done. It is a day to think about the thousands of women whose voices aren’t heard, whose emotions aren’t heard and are excluded from realizing their dreams and having the life they deserve. Does this sound like what we do every day at Global Woman? I believe so.
We truly believe that it is time to treat women as equals and give them the respect they deserve, to remind them of their power and importance. Among other things in ‘Global Woman’ we believe that ‘Old Paradigm’ behaviour needs to be replaced by a ‘New Paradigm’ approach, where men and women can work together in a climate of mutual support and co-operation to put an end to unacceptable behaviour.
With the mission to empower women everywhere, to provide exposure, mentorship and to develop them into socially conscious global leaders, Global Woman has hosted hundreds of events for them, helping and advice them how to overcome the dark zone, take action and reach the highest potential in their career and turn their ideas into a profitable one.
International Women’s Day helps us celebrate both past and present and create an opinion in our mind how the future has hold for women.
Today we are more than happy that women in many countries have the freedom to choose for their life and we believe that the future will be brighter. We are happy and celebrate the fact that some of the world’s leading minds are women – like Theresa May and Angela Merkel in politics. However, there are still many countries where because of the customary and patriarchal thinking and practise, there is still much to do about the freedom and independence of women.
Therefore, it is necessary for society to become aware of the massive education of women, emancipation and its full integration into society. This should be supported by both sexes, but especially by women, by women who are already successful, so that women can enjoy the deserved place in society without need to become a tool for calculations through quotas but fight with all democratic tools to be equal in representation, politics, economy and business.
Let’s celebrate international women’s day and wish that every girl and woman all around the world can live in dignity and harmony. Not only on 8th March 2019, but every day!
