"Where there is woman, there is magic." - Ntozake Shange
The 8th of March is celebrated as International Women's day every year. It is a time you will have everyone talking about women empowerment, equality and so much more. Often we hear cynics saying "why should we celebrate women's day?" and on the other hand, we have people asking "why should women be celebrated only one day of the year?"
To understand, we must first have some context. The United Nations (UN) started with celebrating International Women’s Day in 1975 but it was only in 1977, the UN General Assembly declared 'March 8th' as International Women’s Day in support of women’s rights and global peace.
The UN has commemorated the day by establishing a theme every year. This year, the theme is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”.
This day is significant because it celebrates women’s achievements, raises awareness about gender equality, and accelerates gender parity, as well as fundraising for various female-focused charities.
Now the question arises, how do you celebrate the special woman in your life? How do you make her feel special, valued and loved?
