Thank You to the Women of the World!
Happy international women’s day! I wanted take a moment and reflect on how crazy amazing you all are and to send out a huge thank you!
I’m extremely blessed to have wonderful, strong women in my day to day and am constantly bewildered how gracefully they move through life…. Sometimes I struggle with tweeting and chewing bubble gum.
A quick shout out to some great friends: Mom(s), Grams, Marioke, Sheri, Sis, Ashley and Ilaria, Love ya!
2012 Theme: CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES
If every International Women’s Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.
Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Organisations, governments, charities and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.
“Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures” is the 2012 theme of the internationalwomensday.com website and this has been widely used by hundreds of organisations including schools, universities, governments, women’s groups and the private sector. Each year the United Nations declares an overall International Women’s Day theme. Their 2012 theme is “Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty”. Many organisations develop their own themes that are more relevant to their local contexts. For example, the European Parliament’s 2012 theme is “Equal pay for work of equal value”.
To the women that I’m blessed to have in my life and all the women around the world, you rock! and I’m jealous of how many accessory options you have 😉
