you never know how strong she is
until she gets in hot water. – Happy Women’s Day!
Different countries have different histories for their reason for celebration of International Women’s Day. In the West, International Women’s Day was first observed as a popular event after 1977 when the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights and world peace. Since then, we observe International Women’s Day on March 8th every year. Each year International Women’s Day is celebrated with a theme to support a issue for women. This 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. The topic is designed to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, building momentum for the effective implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals. It focuses on having gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s human rights.
The willingness to listen,
the patience to understand,
the strength to support,
the heart to care & just to be there….
that is the beauty of a lady – Happy Women’s Day!
If you could see it from my eyes
you would know you are one gem of a Woman! – Happy Women’s Day!
Gone are the days when men were supreme and the only bread earners. Today’s women have created their space in different areas proving that it’s no more of a man’s world. From Bollywood actresses like Priyanka Chopra and Kalki Koechlin promoting feminism strongly to 18-year-old social activist Malala Yousafzai are working quite hard in promoting girls, promoting their education, to Late Kalpana Chawla who went into the space and made us all proud. These strong female personalities have stood up for their rights and rightly so, are continuing to establish a status equal to the men.
She loves my Dad.
She takes care of us.
She makes our home surrounds with joy.
She is the strongest woman I know. – HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY Mom!
