IWD 2021 – Celebrating Women of Strength and Courage

It’s another International Women’s Day! You might be wondering why women deserve to be celebrated the way they are often celebrated. You really do not need to think too far. If one were to make a list of reasons, we would probably run out of writing space. Women are indeed special, and you can hardly place a price on what they are worth. The strength and courage women exude in dealing with life’s physical and emotional challenges bears testament to the fact that the Almighty God took his special time to create these super creatures called women!

The International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated in more than 46 countries in the world and it is a major day of global celebration and acknowledgement of the presence of women for their economic, political and social achievements among others.

For over 100 years, International Women’s Day has put the spotlight on issues affecting women all over the world. Today IWD belongs to everyone who believe that women’s right are human rights.

The International Women’s Day is significant in a way that it spurs us to reflect on extraordinary roles played by women in every walk of life. Although many countries in the world have made advancements, gender equality, safety and total obliteration of some form of harassments still remain an unfulfilled dream.

However, guaranteeing the rights of women and giving them the right to reach their full potential is critical not only for attaining gender equality but also for meeting a wide range of international development goals.

Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of their families, communities, and countries, creating a ripple effect that benefits everyone.

Women are tenacious, passionate, strong, open minded, inspiring and for these reasons they are very special, and it is important that we treat them as such. There should be a better climate for them to harness their full potentials.

Once again, Happy International Women’s Day! Choose to challenge all the obstacles that stand in your way today and live a life of a queen that you are!
