Celebrating International Women’s Day

international women's day, celebrating women globally, inspiring women globally, from behind the pen

International Women’s Day is recognized and celebrated around the world across developed and developing countries alike. The first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1911. There are ongoing international efforts in the fight for women’s rights and participation in political, social and economic processes. Victimization has perpetuated an injustice among women that still haunts cultures around the world on various levels and in a range of degrees.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Inspiring Change.” Today there will be celebrations around the world to connect and celebrate the achievement of women. This is an ideal time to recognize and inspire change for women in areas that will be viable assets to our local, national and global communities.

I love this video produced by Google. It’s a snapshot of global diversity for women.

  1. Thank you for this post. Where I live, Women’s Day is more about being kind and giving flowers; in a way, it’s reduced. Today many people share some love and a compliment. I believe we have to do this more often – even the smallest gesture of regard and some little moment of kindness can have a great impact.

    That’s why I’m intending to write a newspaper article about complimenting and its beautiful effects when people actually mean what they say. I try to collect compliments, so if you want to take part – just submit a compliment you recently paid or received by commenting on this post: http://nothingofthekind.wordpress.com/2014/03/07/my-best-compliments/.

    I would be honoured if you could take part in this project as it means a lot to me. I aim to take small steps to change something. It’s a success if someone just thinks about it.

    And Happy International Women’s Day to you!


  2. Good beautiful morning to you Anna! Thank you so much for leaving such a kind comment as we recognize women, not only today, but “every” day. So often we take people and what they do for granted, and when we finally realize their spiritual worth, they are usually plucked away from us.

    I truly applaud your project to write an article about complimenting, which is free and anyone can do it! I absolutely love your approach to life and living. I concur with you on your blog that sometimes, we tend to look for things that have a physical beauty and often overlook the jewels that often grow among the weeds. I would be delighted to reciprocate your beautiful gesture and thank you for taking the time to read and follow my blog. Make it a “FAN-ta-bu-lous” day and Happy International Women’s Day to you as well.

    Peace & Blessings! 🙂
