Happy International Women's Day. You are strong. You are powerful. You are your own beautiful person. For that I am forever grateful.
While embracing individuality, we must remember the fight for equality is a collaborative effort. We must remember to uplift and appreciate each others uniqueness. Women empowering women is an incredibly strong force. We must celebrate today in honor of our ancestors who fought for our voices to be heard, while reminding ourselves that there is still a lot of work to be done.
The very privilege you may have being born a certain way or in a certain place is something others have to fight for. The fight for equality includes everybody of every race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. I encourage you to go out today embracing your individuality and exchange stories with a stranger. Learn how you can empower one another. Too often women are misrepresented as individuals who put each other down, but theres a lot of lovely, powerful ladies out there! We are stronger together Focus on the good in each other because there is so much of it! And team work makes the dream work my friends.
