Tomorrow, 8th of March is International Women’s Day. The purpose of this day, as stated on the IWD website, is the following:
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- celebrate women’s achievements
- raise awareness about women’s equality
- lobby for accelerated gender parity
- fundraise for female-focused charities‘
Celebrate with me!
This year’s theme for IWD is #ChooseToChallenge:
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.https://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme
I have written several poems which fit well with this theme, and I will be publishing them throughout the day, from 9am CET onwards. If you wish to join me in celebrating women’s achievements and calling for equality, simply link up a poem on this theme, or post to Twitter tagging @Experimentsinfc or Instagram tagging @experimentsinfiction. You can also use the hashtags #ChooseToChallenge and #IWD2021 to help spread the message far and wide. I am really looking forward to this day of celebration and protest, and I hope you will join me!
And if that wasn’t enough of a call to action, here’s the Eurythmics with Aretha Franklin:
The Annie Lennox song says it all really.
It surely does!
yea celebrating sisters in style … love this song!
I am scheduling a poem linked back to this post to publish tomorrow around 2. It is my sister’s birthday so I may not be on, but hopefully the pingback will work! 💖 Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Thank you so much for being part of this Jaya! Do enjoy your sister’s birthday 🎂😊
It’s an inspiring, insightful song and video. I came here through Nin chronicles post by Jaya Avendel.
Thank you 🙏
Pleasure is all mine, Ingrid 🤗
love the song! I am clearly binge reading and missed this…. oops.. where do the minutes go. Happy Woman’s day to one that kicks ass! Yes, you Ingrid! 💖
I had a marathon posting day earlier in the week 😅 maybe my addiction is getting worse? 🥰
I don’t think it’s sustainable for me!
You go while you’re on a roll.
Hate when I can’t keep up with my followers!
I think it’s inevitable at some point! 💖
Cindy, honestly-don’t worry about me!!!! I will not be offended if you don’t comment on everything I do. Just stay in touch when you have the time 😊🥰❤️
Oh I know that but thanks!!!!
But a post without chatting to Ingrid is a day without sunshine. Just don’t start posting twice a day or you might get cut off; not just by me.. lol.
