Being Half the Sky

International Women’s Day 2014 Theme: INSPIRING CHANGE
Women’s equality has made positive gains but the world is still unequal. International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.
Inspiring Change is the 2014 theme for our internationalwomensday.com global hub and encourages advocacy for women’s advancement everywhere in every way. It calls for challenging the status quo for women’s equality and vigilance inspiring positive change.

I just received thirdeyemums recent blog, and felt the need to share it. As it is international womens day, she reminded me of how lucky we are living in first world countries, while so many women suffer and live in violence, poverty, abuse, and slavery in the world. Today is a day to be aware , and celebrate the women who have inspired change in this world. To be kind, love, care and support our fellow sisters.
One very inspiring women is Malala Yousafzai, and her book, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for education and was shot by the Taliban.
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education..
Thank you Malala for your inspiration,strength and courage.
Happy international women’s day.
