9 Empowering Ways To Celebrate International Womens Day!

International Womens Day may mean different things to different people, but above all else it's about celebrating women! Celebrating all the things women can and have achieved throughout history. To celebrate gender equality, the advancement of women's rights, political, social, cultural achievements across the globe! 

I wanted to share a few fantastic ways for us all to celebrate the day, personally, as a group or even as a family!

9 Empowering Ways To Celebrate International Womens Day!


Join in the #EachForEqual campaign
This years IWD campaign is entitled Each For Equal. It's about collectively creating an equal world, an enabled world. A world where we challenge stereotypes, improve situations, fight bias. A healthier, wealthier world where we can all thrive and look after each other. After all, equality is not a women's issue, it should be everyone's priority. 

To join in on the campaign you can help spread the word on social media. Share your support by striking a pose and standing up, as an individual for what you believe in. You can also download 'selfie cards' to help promote action and show your support. 

Head To A March Or An Event
Grab your loved ones and head to a march to stand loud and proudly demand an end to gender violence, equal pay for equal work, freedom of choice and freedom of speech, body autonomy and gender stereotypes! You can have a quick google to see if there are any marches going on near you, or search here to see if there are any events in your area. 

Show Your Support For Other Women
Whether it's shouting from the rooftops, teaching your children about incredible women, showing your appreciation of your loved ones or best friends or declare your appreciation on social media. Nowadays there are so many ways to show how much you value and appreciate others, so make sure your voice is heard and spread the word.

Encourage Your Children To Find Inspiration From Important Women
Teaching your children and young adults to openly challenge stereotypes and educating them about gender issues is hugely important to help create a more inclusive world. Speak to them about gender stereotypes, encourage them to celebrate all the wonderful things women can achieve and even share a story or two about some of the incredible women in history. Personally I really really love the 'Little People, Big Dreams' books but you can find some more book suggestions here, and here



Compile An IWD Playlist And Play It LOUD
Create a motivational, upbeat playlist on spotify celebrating all the fantastic women who have created beautiful music. Play the playlist all day loud, play it loud and sing along. Those women wanted to be heard and they deserve to be!

Do Something Kind For A Woman You Love
Whether it's your daughter, your wife, your partner, your best friend, your mum. Do something a little extra special for them today. Give them flowers, write them a handwritten note, take them out for the afternoon. Show them what an incredible human being they are and how much you treasure your relationship with them.

Shop At Female-Run Small Businesses
Whether it's online or offline, try and challenge yourself to use female run small businesses. Help them celebrate all the fantastic achievements they have accomplished!

Donate To A Womens Refuge
All women are incredible and all women deserve to be celebrated, no matter what hardship or struggles they may have gone through. So why not give something back and make a donation. It doesn't have to be money, womens refuges often accept bedding, clothes, or even food. Have a look online and see if there are any refuges or shelters near you.

Celebrate How Incredible YOU Are
If you want to stay at home and revel in just how amazing you are, that's ok too. Take the day to look after yourself, drink all the tea, watch all of that TV show, take a long hot bath, eat all the chocolate. Do whatever you want to celebrate your amazing self. 

"HERE'S TO STRONG WOMEN. 
MAY WE KNOW THEM. 
MAY WE BE THEM. 
MAY WE RAISE THEM."

How will you be celebrating International Womens Day?
