Today we are celebrating International Women Day #IWD2017. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange! Being bold is indeed what women need to do to take their destiny in their own hands.
Change will not happen organically and it will not happen in our lifetime if all of us women don’t question every day the status-quo.
WE have to be bold to refuse the archaic roles assigned to women in the family and in the professional life.
WE have to fight for maternity leave, equal pay, equal treatment, and equal work in the home.
WE have to fight against harassment, violence and discrimination.
WE have to be kind to each other and show solidarity to all the women around us who may need our help.
WE have to teach our sons that men can change also be bold and take a stance every day for girls and women.
WE have to encourage women around us to be very bold and become politicians because they will shape the future laws of our countries for our benefit.
I am proud to be working for a bold and visionary company that is 100% woman-owned and that employs 12 women and 2 men from all regions of the world, all ages, so many cultures and faiths. I wish there were more companies like the one I work for. I wish we all had more female role models and mentors. I wish more women were as lucky as I am allowing me to live fully my life as a professional working woman while raising two children on my own.
May every day be International Women’s Day!!!
