Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and I can’t say I did much.
But I think the point is that women, as a collective, do so much to prove themselves that it’s alright that we take one day out of the year to do nothing. There’s all these seminars about bettering yourself and book talks about how you can be the perfect wife or girlfriend or best friend and there’s not much telling women to just be themselves.
So, today, in honor of International Women’s Day, I want to tell all women, yes all women, whether you identify as a woman, or not, that you are a woman and that’s enough. Strong, brave, clever, passionate. You are all these things because you are a woman. It comes with the territory.
Because that’s how you should define women. Not what’s between their legs. But the strength of what beats in their chest.
So, if that’s you, then celebrate IWD with everything you got. You’re woman. And you should be proud.
