Be A Strong, Independent, Resourceful Woman!
it’s one of my favorite days of the year-International Women’s Day!
this is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. it is also a day to be reminded that there is still quite a ways to go for women to hold the same social/economic/political power as men.
this is a driving force behind why i started ‘the new wifestyle’-to ensure women are having an equal voice in their relationships and creating a partnership.
the below image is a quote my mom thankfully ingrained in my fiber as i was growing up and reminds me of today:
sometimes we need to be reminded of this and if you’ve never heard these words spoken to you-call me and i will tell you this. please feel free to share it with others (and i will be posting it on social media).
there is still much to be done and we need both women AND men to take a stand for gender equality.
i also just found that “Miss Representation” is on netflix so my husband and i are going to be watching that today. it’s a documentary to “Explore how the media’s often disparaging portrayals of women contribute to the under-representation of females in positions of power, creating another generation of women defined by beauty and sexuality, and not by their capacity as leaders.”
celebrate the strong women in your life and let them know the effect they’ve had on bettering your life-call them, text them, hug them, send a card, etc
the new wifestyle: being a strong, independent and resourceful woman is vital to creating your full potential.
what are you doing today to celebrate the strong women in your life?
