In the days leading up to #InternationalWomensDay on March 8, 2019, we have been asking you what is that one change you will implement in your lives to promote gender equality.
On International Women’s Day, women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions – whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.
We all have different ways of marking the day. Some of us attend seminars at our workplaces while others share interesting videos and articles on social media. Some even attend protests carried out on the day to address important issues.
The UN theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change. It calls for achieving a gender-equal world through social innovations that work for both women and men and leave no one behind.
This past week, we have been asking our social media followers what is that #OneChange that they will start doing from today to improve gender equality. Here are your thoughts:
Your diverse answers all spoke one message: working towards a more gender-balanced world by harnessing the power of both women and men to create homes, workplaces, communities and countries that celebrate and honour the achievements of all.
Your innovative ideas provide a solution that each of us is applying to our everyday scenarios to ensure that we can play our part in creating a better world for the next generation.
Happy International Women’s Day from My Choices Foundation!
