HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! đź’•International Women’s day is an event established to bring global awareness of women’s rights. It is a day where women have the opportunity to raise awareness of issues that affect them across the world. 

At times we are so unaware of what women around the world are going through daily so it’s great to stand in solidarity with our fellow sisters to let them know they we see them and we are here to offer our support. 

The 2019 theme is #balanceforbetter - a balance world is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world? Well, we can celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.

We believe all women can get involved, but not just for one day, but everyday, by making conscious efforts to help women in our circle, communities, cities and bringing awareness. It is an exciting time. Women are not afraid to speak up against the injustices imposed upon them, not afraid to tell their truth, not afraid to ask for help and with social media it's now very easy to raise awareness, and garner support from our fellow sisters from across the globe.

So, no matter how you celebrate IWD, support your fellow sisters by supporting a cause. This is a day to honour the women who have paved the way before us, the women we are, the women who are currently in our lives and those who are proactively paving the way for our future.
