International Women’s Day is March 8th …
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
Do wonder what men would say if we banned “Circumcision” and insisted on “vasectomies” ….
yet we have so little choice over our own bodies …
My Great Aunty Nora was super inspiring … she did cryptic crosswords until the day before she died a few months before her hundredth birthday. She was broadly read and her vocab the best I know, she wiped the floor with us in scrabble. At 76 yo she went to school to learn Italian coz she wanted to talk to her neighbours. After fifty years of heavy smoking she quit! Never heard her grumble and she was always interested in what ‘we’ /others were doing … such a blessing!
