HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! 💕International Women’s day is an event that was established to bring 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.

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

We believe all women can get involved, but not just for this day, but everyday, by making conscious efforts to help women in your circle, community and city. It is an exciting time. Women are not afraid to speak up against the injustices imposed upon them, and with social media it easy to raise awareness, and garner support from our fellow sisters from across the world.

So, however you celebrate the day, small or large - 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.
