Today is International Women’s Day – a day that commemorates the movement for women’s rights. I am sure all of you have some fantastic women in your lives that inspire you everyday. I know I do! The women in my life have made such a huge impact on my life. Women are strong, resilient, intelligent, independent, beautiful human beings. Many of you who are reading this are women and inspire others around them.
Happy International Women’s Day to YOU!
In North America, parts of Europe and Australia – most women are treated fairly with similar rights to men in 2018. However, this was not always the case. By 1918, all caucasian women in Canada had the right to vote. By 1960, all minority groups were given the right to vote as well in Canada (Source). In the United States of America, on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified and women were finally allowed to vote (Source). You may think that that is a long time ago but that just means that women were given similar rights as men in the last one hundred years. Humans have been on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years. In some countries, women still do not have similar rights as men. Countries in the continent of Africa or in the Middle Eastern Region still face a lot of gender inequality.
WOMEN ARE POWERFUL!
In the last one hundred years, there have been many protests around the world. Many women faced charges, jail time, being shunned from their communities – all for standing up for their own rights. I am so PROUD to be a women – women are fighters!
Some of the women who inspire me most…
I am so lucky to have some resilient women in my life who inspire me in my day to day life. My mother is one of my biggest inspirations. She can weather any storm and face it so gracefully. It has inspired me to do everything with class and grace. My aunt is another woman who is a huge inspiration in my day to day life. She inspires me to be light hearted and humorous. She teaches me how to love hard always and be as generous as I could be. Another woman in my life that is constantly amazing me is my grandmother. She is the most incredible, sweet lady who is tough as a shell.
I am lucky enough to have my cousins – Zina, Rama and Jessica who are like my sisters. They make me feel like I have a biological sister. I can not imagine my life without these ladies and hopefully do not ever have to go through life even for a day without them. They are amazing.
My Best Friend Tania…
She is one of the most hardworking woman I know. I will never understand how she takes on so many tasks and juggles them with class. She is going places in life and she always inspires me to do better in life. I am so happy I have someone in my life who is constantly encouraging me to do my best. Someone who believes in me and supports every single goal I have. Everyone needs a best friend like Tania. Everyone just needs a Tania in their life!
