Much like the two parallel lines in an ‘=’ ( EQUAL) sign, all we ask for, is to be considered at par in all that we do. To be given a chance at life and not be killed in the womb. To receive education like our brothers do. To feel safe in our own homes, societies, and countries. To have our ambitions, dreams, and goals be given due importance. To be accorded equal opportunities and not be held back from progressing in our chosen paths. To be paid equally like all our counterparts when the input is equal. A woman’s right to equality has been understated for centuries. It’s 2020! Let’s come together and make it an Egalitarian society as a unified force, to ensure our current and future generations can experience ‘equality’ in reality by pledging to be #EachForEqual. Let’s BE the change we wish to see. Happy Women’s Day! . . . . . . . . #IWD2020 #InternationalWomensDay2020 #womensrights #equality

The happiest women today are not the married ones. They’re not the single ones. They’re not the ones with stable careers and good incomes. The happiest women are the ones who made a choice to love themselves wholly and truly. Women who chose to leave the past behind, worked on their self-esteem and put a high price tag on their self-esteem. They stopped playing victims. They stopped whining in self-pity and dining in pity parties. They moved past their anger, tears and bitterness. They realized that happiness is a personal choice and responsibility. They chose to be defined by their present, but not their pasts. They are happy because they don’t need validation from anyone. They are happy because they know that they don’t need to throw shade on anyone for them to shine. They are happy because they chose to be Queens …. Happy Women’s day today n everyday ♥️… such beautiful words

The day was only recognised by the United Nations in 1975, but ever since it has created a theme each year for the celebration. The theme for International Women’s Day 2020 is #EachforEqual, recognising all of the actions we can take as individuals to challenge stereotypes, fight prejudice and celebrate women’s achievements. Last year, the theme was #BalanceForBetter, which aimed to encourage gender balance in boardrooms, in the media and in wealth as a way for economies to thrive.
