International Womens Day is a day to celebrate every women! Don’t worry men – you’ll get your turn!
The first recorded Women’s Day was on March 8 in 1909 over 100 years a go! It was about fighting for women’s rights to work and be paid as equally as men.
Haven’t we come a long way?! Acknowledging that unfortunately we still have some way to go. But I thank the women over the past 100 years that have fought long and hard for me to be able to stand here today and be a proud young business women in the beautiful regional town of Albury. To me its something worth celebrating.
I look around me and i’m surrounded by amazing women every day. Whether its a pregnant mum to be or a new mum with her newborn child that I get the honour of meeting in the Studio. But its also the check-out chick, the lady who serves me coffee, the women that compliments my lipstick as I pass through her store, the young girl who waves out of her pram being pushed by her mum. Its all the women in the world, young and old that deserve to be celebrated!
I have to honour my mum who is one of the most amazing women in my life. Not only has she raised me to be strong, independent and ambitious, but she herself is also these things in many ways. Her wisdom amazes me, her heart astounds me. Thanks mum for being an incredible roll model to me.
Make sure you find a woman in your life today and thank them for being the women they are! Fun, loud, vibrant, soft, bright, loving, caring, fierce, strong, bubbly, crazy, terrific! Who run the world? Women! (And Men help of course!)
(P.s Men are amazing to!!)
