It was International Women’s Day this past Sunday and being a woman who works in an industry with lots of women I have first-hand experience on the awesomeness of women. It’s true, we are complicated and emotional, but we are also loving, incredibly caring and have so much to give. I see these amazing women in my life and can’t help but be awed, not only by who they are but what they do.
International women’s day is about celebrating the achievements of women while calling for greater equality. And let’s face it, the world doesn’t treat women the way they treat men, but women are totally awesome. I could write for hours on how women are awesome, but I think you know it. You have a mother, a sister, a wife, a coworker, a friend who does amazing things.
Being surrounded by female entrepreneurs, I can’t help but think that women have the power to help change the world, to make the world a better place. But, like any group that was thought of and treated as lesser, it’s always a battle for change. But, I think we’re up for the battle and able to make that change. It will take all of us working together to create a world where everyone is treated as equals (this is not just a women’s fight). I don’t think it will be easy, but just imagine what the world would be like if we were all really equal. What would be possible? What could we achieve?
