On this day, International Women's Day, us as women are encouraged to express ourselves as powerful women in life. In reality though, we should keep in mind, being proud to be who we are should not be limited to just one day! We should celebrate each other everyday! This is not only a day to celebrate women achievements in the world, but also to consider what more needs to be done to achieve equality.
The encouraging messages I've seen all day from friends make me happy and I wish we could just express that to one another more often. We are powerful and beautiful and intelligent and should be reminded of that always.
This day is also made as a reminder to speak out for those women who cannot speak for themselves. We should be the voice they need to hear and the voice they wish they could have. Women are still considered inferior in other places of the world and on this day, we should stand with those women and give them strength that it will get better.
On this day, I hope young women see what is going on around them and note that they are more than what they wear, they are more than what is said about them, they are more than what is perceived about them, they are more than a wage gap or just a little pretty thing; they are POWERFUL! I hope they look back and see what others before them have done and pay it forward and pave the way to others after them.
There is still so much we can do to help each other and show that on this day for years to come we are powerful.
