Women’s Web is recognizing role models with WICA, and number of women nominating for the Women In Corporate Awards is increasing. Apply now, last date – 18th July
Got up to another beautiful day, feeling grateful and happy. This day is special because the whole world (most part of it) is celebrating women.
I opened the newspaper to go through the news before I get to my work. The newspaper was full of advertisements. Special Women’s Day discounts on beauty products, lingerie, salon services and home decor. While this is all good, I wish there were discounts on cars, bikes, in bookstores, on sports equipment, on horse riding classes and so on.
It’s not about wanting to be equal physically, no, I don’t want that. It is about equal opportunity. It is about letting a woman do what they want.
My phone is buzzing since morning with messages of Happy Women’s Day on WhatsApp. I went through each one of them but I did not find anything inspiring because celebrating a woman is not about telling her that she is a daughter, a mother, a wife, she is kind and caring. Women’s Day is not about making the women feel stronger, because she is already strong. We should change the way the world perceives that strength.
Though the messages did not inspire me, there are a few women in my life who have really inspired me and made me proud.
I want to dedicate this writeup to them.
Apart from these very lovely women, I draw inspiration from every woman I know because each one of them is a treasure and there is so much to learn from them.
From now onwards, on Women’s Day, let’s inspire each other to be better, recognize the difference and celebrate the difference. That I feel is the essence of a woman.
