International Women's Day is a global, annual event which inspires change and empowers women. It covers everything from basic human rights (e.g. sex workers, access to education) to equality in finance (e.g. equal pay). The taboo of feminism is dropping from the faces of women around the world, and this is incredible to see.
As a woman, you have a choice. This is feminism.
Bra burning is soooo 20th century!!!
Feminist or not, every woman should be aware of his event, and in turn, the issues their gender faces around the world and in their own country. Women's inequality and mistreatment is not just something that happens in lesser developed countries - it's here in the UK too.
The internet and the world is buzzing about this: take a look at my pick of the crop of blogs, links and events!
