How can you get involved?
The most important thing that we can do right now is keep the lines of conversation open and keep our minds open to the endless possibilities around us. Here are a few things you could do for International Women’s Day:
• Get involved in this year’s theme – #ChoosetoChallenge – take your picture with your hand up, palm open and facing outwards, and post it on social media with the hashtags #IWD2021 and #ChoosetoChallenge and tell others why you are getting involved and what it means to you.
• Create conversation amongst your peer groups and with your friends and family, talk about what is important to you, have open (friendly) debates on topics that mean the most to you. Listen to others and understand what matters to them. Find ways to support each other.
• Show the other women in your life how much you value and appreciate them. You don’t have to go out and spend money on gifts, just pick up the phone or send them a message and thank them for all that they do for you.
• Always be yourself. Through the year’s women have had to fight for freedom and for what they believe in. Don’t allow that fight and their victories to become wasted. Be 100% you all the time and be proud of who you are. Find a community where you can show up as yourself, in fact come and join mine.
