IWD? No, that does not stand for “I want donuts” (but yes, we do). Instead it stands for something a bit more exciting… International Women’s Day!
IWD is celebrated on the 8th of March every year. It recognizes the struggle that women have fought to gain equal rights. Even though we are still continuing to change the world today, it is important to reflect on the progress that has been created by all of the strong women before us. Additionally, it is so wonderful to reflect on our own achievements, because each of us is an amazing woman with the potential to accomplish anything we set our mind on and to shatter every glass ceiling that comes our way.
Never forget that every single one of us are important and powerful, and that we do touch the lives of all those around us. We are mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, friends, wives, bosses, leaders, influencers, role models, inspirations, and heros.
So, although we wish we could celebrate every day as though it is IWD, we encourage you to take a few extra seconds today to reach out to some of the important women in your life and wish them a beautiful and FAB International Women’s Day. Buy a sunflower, send a card (we have dozens of perfect options like the ones above), make a phone call, or drop by their home and remind them just how appreciated they are.
Happy International Women’s Day from the team at Fashionistas For You!
