A Letter To My Daughter On International Women's Day

A Letter To My Daughter On International Women's Day”

Press Release:-International Women's Day 2017 will be celebrated on Wednesday March 8th under the theme "Be Bold for Change".

"We are not lost to the fact that women in Kenya and all over the world go through several challenges".

The movement suggests that women do not work on March 8, only shop at women- or minority-owned retailers and wear red as an outward sign of solidarity. But, this International Women's Day is going to be a little bit different.

Minister responsible for Gender Relations Honourable Dr. Gale Rigobert has echoed the call for wearing purple.

"The rate of women's employment in the European Union reached an all-time high of 65.5% in 2016 and yet there is still a big difference with the 77% rate of men", add the Commissioners. The International Women's Conference, which was held in the same year, also unanimously approved the proposal and had over 100 women from 17 countries.

As for men, in the event FAQ, organizers say, "We ask that our male allies lean into care giving on March 8th, and use the day to call out decision-makers at the workplace and in the government to extend equal pay and adequate paid family leave for women". Within this year, the Commission will present a new work-life balance initiative for parents and carers.

Led by the same organization that created the Women's March on Washington, this time the group is urging women to refrain from any kind of labor or spending to show the value of women on March 8, 2017. National strike organizers do not have a prediction for how many women might participate. Co-founder Kiki Louya said they chose that number because, on average, women make 20 cents less then their male counterparts.

So, International Women's Day is an important day for me, and one on which I draw inspiration from the fantastic work that has been undertaken by women in our community.

Anwer is on the planning committee for a rally in Lafayette, Indiana, that ― among other things ― will include an 11 a.m. walk-out at three locations, including one in downtown Lafayette that any woman can join for an hour or so. Whether you're in the office, at the grocery store or on Twitter, speak up to assert how valuable you and other women truly are. "You should talk to co-workers about the importance of taking back political power from frankly the white-supremacist agenda that is being promoted by the Republican party", she said. In some countries especially in rural areas and villages, women still stick to homes only by putting valueless ethics on them. There's something written on here that every woman can relate to.
