To all the women in my life, and women everywhere, a very happy women’s day!
Being a woman, unfortunately, is still hard even in 2017. We still have a lot to fight for to prove that there’s no weaker sex. Over time, women have proven, that they are as capable as any man. From biology to math, to physics to sports, we have proven ourselves over and over.
I want to take this moment not just to celebrate our womanhood, but also to encourage you to break the stereotypes the society has imposed on us. Teach the young women in your life that they should dream big. Let them dream about being a successful woman before marriage. Let them dream of travel before dreaming of love. Let them know that they are capable of anything and everything. Teach them how amazing a woman is, and how hard it can be as well.
Being a woman is not easy for sure. As I grow older I’m finding out more and more how challenging it really is. Growing up in a conservative, male-dominated society, I knew from a young age that I didn’t belong. I believed that I should be considered equal and couldn’t accept anything less. If I ever have a daughter, I’m going to make sure that she knows that.
Despite it being 2017, we still need to fight for our rights. We shouldn’t stand still while men are deciding our future. WE SHOULD UNITE!
To all the kick ass women all over the world, thank you and a very happy women’s day!
