International Women's Day 2016

Today March 8th is International Women's Day, this year's slogan is "Pledging for Parity".

In today's world women continues to contribute to the social, economic, and political achievements. However, progress towards gender parity has slowed and The World Economic Form predicts that the gender gap will not close until 2133.

Women of the world has to unity to make strides for equality. We need to call for gender balance in places of power. We need to see our government more representative of us.  We need to lobby for cultures that is inclusive and flexible in the treatment of women. We need to educate and provide access to education in order to stop violence against women.

As women we need to help girls and young women achieve their ambitions. We need to recognize their full creativity and full potential of all the women in our lives. Encouraging and offer opportunities to each other so that as women we can gain great parity.

On this International women's lets #pledgeforparity, let's educate our girls, let's encourage our young women to tackle the fields that are traditionally held by men. Let's break the glass ceiling until they have no other choice but to treat us equally.

How can you make a positive difference in the lives of women in your community?

Happy International Women's Day to my fellow feminist!
