It's International Women's Day, so all over the world, women are being praised, honoured and remembered for their contributions to not just their community, but also to the world. We're celebrating the rise of the woman and a spotlight is being put on bold women who brought about radical change to the world we live in today. #SuccessfulWoman
In the years that have passed, women have been given the right to vote, and the right to get an education - Praise The Lord!! Women are not second class citizens, were equal to men, and the phrase "Anything he can do, I can do better" has never been more relevant than it is today. As a woman, I take pride in the fact that I can do anything that a man can do. I'm strong and intelligent, so I don't frown upon the idea of doing things like DIY. I tie my long black hair up, pull up my sleeves, get my tools out (yes I own my own selection of tools) and put shelves up, build chester drawers, hang curtains and blinds and so much more. That may seem simple, but that's female independence. I have set up successful businesses, and thrive; especially in photography, which was a very male dominated industry many years ago. #ThisGirlCan
Women are powerful and when we use our full potential, and when we live in our purpose, there is no limit to what we can achieve i.e. change happens. Women still face issues, especially in the workplace, but we fight the battles in the name of girl power because we are strong and passionate. Basically, we overcome! #WonderWoman
I've worked with wonderful women from all different backgrounds and all different walks of life and I can confidently say that when women have visions, they go after them wholeheartedly, and they don't let anything get in the way. Women have outstanding opportunities, fantastic minds, big voices, and even bigger hearts. As a result of that, women inspire change EVERYDAY. #ProudToBeAWoman
To all of the ladies and girls reading this, Be Proud To Be A Woman! Believe in yourself, don't compete with men, know that you are who you are for a reason, and let me tell you this "The world couldn't turn without you." When God made the world, He wasn't done until He made the woman and presented her to the man. Genesis 1:26. You are mothers, sisters, aunties, nieces, cousins, business women, friends, colleagues and so much more. Last but not least, you are AMAZING so don't think of yourself as anything less. #XChromosome
Fun Fact: All foetus start off in the womb as females. #LikeAGirl (Tell that to all of your male friends today)
Don't forget to share this with friends and family to celebrate and spread the knowledge and understanding.
