From the 1970’s women’s movement in the United States to today’s International Women’s Day, it is clear that women continue to demonstrate empowerment. Through hard work and dedication, women are establishing their equality, as they should. International Women’s Day first began in the early 1900’s- which means before that women were restricted to many opportunities, and now women have the most freedom than our ancestors ever had. The inequality and injustice lead vocal women to become the voice for the silent ones, who had no hope and were intimidated by a world empowered by men. The unfortunate past has lead women to become heard. Because of it there has been a dramatic shift in society’s thoughts and perspective in women. Nowadays, women have become successful entrepreneurs, CEO’s, doctors, engineers, and the list goes on. Women have taken initiative to always stay connected and encourage each other to spread equality.
What is International Women’s Day?
On this special day, Women gather to celebrate their freedom, rights, and accomplishments. It is the day everyone can reflect on political changes and achievements that have allowed women to be part developments. Along with a day filled with celebration, unity, advocacy, and action. Women are to the only ones celebrating this special occasion, as the doors are open for anyone who wishes to be part of this yearly historical event.
Why Balance For Better hashtag?
It seems that women are not the issue until it comes to a business issue. Women can either be taken as a threat in the workforce or be treated equally as everyone else. During this time period, gender has been a hot topic. Different genders have been evolving and have had their struggles in the process of success. Gender balance is essential for companies, communities, economies, and for the entire globalization to thrive. The mutual collaboration will allow more doors to open rather than closing, due to the gender imbalance. The key is to spread gender balance awareness all around the world.
