What does being a woman mean to you? Does it mean being confident? Does it mean being strong? Does it mean loving yourself unconditionally? Being a woman means so many different things to different people. Throughout history and today, fierce and feisty female heroines have paved the path for women worldwide.
Today is International Women’s Day and this year it is focused on highlighting the gender parity gap still very much present between men and women. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2017, the gender gap is not getting any smaller. Data suggests that the gap is, in fact, widening and gender equality is moving backwards. Armed with the hashtag #PressforProgress and nothing but passionate gusto, today women (and men) all across the globe will be calling for active progress in closing the gender gap.
As women, International Women’s Day isn’t the only female empowerment celebration we got to embrace this year. Last month, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Representation of People Act in 1918. This act enabled a number of women over the age of 30 to vote – a monumental historical event. However, progress was still to be made as it was only women who lived in a house or were the spouse of someone who lived in a house that could vote at this time. So, after years of women fighting for equal social, economic and political rights, are you ready to join the action?
