With my body clock still inhabiting two time zones, I realise that TODAY is #International Women’s Day in the part of the world where I am currently staying. She is professional working woman. She is also a mother to a young child like my other daughter Anna Shetty. Both my millennial babies are lucky that they can pursue their careers and maintain their individual identities. This is because we come from a family where gender bias doesn’t exist .
But many women in the world aren’t so fortunate. For them life is a struggle dealing with subjugation, inhuman living conditions and discrimination in the work force . While the suffragettes won women the universal right to Vote, very few women enjoy the benefits of feminism and women empowerment .
International women’s day is recognising the need for women to be recognised for their aptitude and ability and not taken notice of merely because they are women.
Sharing below some of the messages I received on this day
I loved all of them but the last one really captures what I feel .
Happy Women’s Day !
