It’s amazing when women come together to achieve a shared goal –the impact is contagious. International Women’s Day 2020 will be celebrated on the 8th of March. International Women’s Day is about celebrating the progress of social, cultural, economic and political achievements for all women in all walks of life. And in seeing so many advancements that have taken place, there is still so much that needs to change to help women do more and contribute more to the world.

Women need to support other women, be ambitious for change and see the bigger picture. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is, “I am Generation Equality: Realising Women’s Rights” The campaign is stated to be about bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve.

Just as Spring wakes up the earth to the youthfulness of a new cycle, so also is a chance for all women to start fresh. Nurturing relationships, celebrating our achievements no matter how big or small, and embracing the beauty that is closely associated with our feminine side. I think these make up the magic of womanhood. Treat a girlfriend to dim sum or tea, and gift yourself a bouquet of flowers this Women’s Day. Why? Because we deserve it, don’t we ladies?
