Each year, International Women’s Day is a reminder of how far we still have to go to achieving gender parity and closing the gender gap.
At the same time, it’s an opportunity to pay tribute to the inspirational women who have played and are still playing vital roles in our societies as exceptional leaders. This year, in particular, the world is recognizing the crucial role women are playing in the ongoing recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
These women can offer important lessons for us all in furthering equality and making an impact in our society.
For the young girls reading this: I want you to know that you can become anything you want to in life. You can be anything you want if you work hard for it. And if your dream is to be become a philanthropist, entrepreneur, and a leader in any field know that you are fully capable of that. In essence, you can be what you want to be. Women are needed in the the world to develop and help the world recover faster. Women are natural incubators that give life and protect. They are the voices of nature. Once again, we celebrate all the women who have not given up on themselves and in the world despite all the challenges they have encountered.
Happy international women’s day.
