International Women’s Day 2015: Let It Show!

Feb 27, 2015 1 Min Read


The ones who inspire, lead and care for us, let’s stand up and recognise them

Do you find strong women attractive?

Strength, self-sufficiency, and leadership are positive qualities.

International Women’s Day (IWD) this year will be celebrated on Mar 8, 2015. All around the world, thousands of events will be held to recognise women’s contributions and achievements.

Observed annually since the 1900s, IWD has always been about helping women find their voices, and in the process effect a positive change for themselves.

This year, initiatives to mark IWD are to encourage:

  • Greater awareness of women’s equality.
  • More women in senior leadership roles.
  • Equal recognition of women in the arts.
  • Growth of women-owned businesses.
  • Increased financial independence of women.
  • More women in science, engineering and technology.
  • Fairer recognition of women in sport.

In modern times, we can acknowledge women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life.

We love strong, independent women who move with courage, make unconventional choices, and forge their own paths through life.

Do mark this day on your calendar as an occasion to support and say thanks!
