A Message For All The Creative Women And Men
This coming March 8th is International Women’s Day! But this day is not only about women showing pride of being who they are and men giving them flowers, it’s about creating awareness about the fact that we’re still working towards gender equality as we are not fully there yet. It’s about celebrating the achievements of women throughout history and standing together for human rights.
IWD started in the early 1900’s when women started to raise their voices to demand equal rights. Since then, it’s been a constant battle for women to have the same opportunities as men – to vote, to receive education, to work… among many other examples.
Every year IWD has a theme. This year, it’s “Women in the changing world of work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”, which is a step towards ensuring women’s economic empowerment in the working world. Because believe it or not, there is still a gender pay gap of 24% between men and women in the world of entrepreneurship and leadership.
So just to be clear, this day is not about women being better than men and it’s not about getting more rights or more respect than the other gender; it’s about seeing each other as equals with the same competitiveness, the same ability to work, in order to bring results in the workplace and outside of it. As the English advertising consultant and founder of IfWeRanTheWorld, Cindy Gallop says “Innovation, disruption and creativity are the result of diversity.”
So if you know any amazingly talented women, don’t forget to let her know how special she is and that you will support her no matter what. It doesn’t matter if you are a woman yourself, we should all support each other because in the end, we all have the same goal – to be wholly and truly happy.
