International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- celebrate women's achievements
- raise awareness about women's equality
- lobby for accelerated gender parity
- fundraise for female-focused charities
The IWD2021 Theme is #ChooseToChallenge
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
In working with this theme I have created a tea inspired by women and created for women in every stage of life. This tea is the perfect blend of super charged herbs full of antioxidants and added nutrients. Sip away while promoting restful relaxation and stimulating mood and memory.
100% of the profits from Womanly will be donated to CARE CANADA.
Our experience has shown that when we remove one barrier, other barriers are knocked down more easily. In other words, an action today has a ripple effect that leads to greater change over time.
When you pave the way for a young girl to go to school, she will ensure that her children go too. When you help seed a woman’s crops, she’ll have food to support not only her family, but her whole community. When you start something good today, your actions are felt for generations to come. CARE knows this because we’ve been working this way for more than 70 years. Years after we’ve finished helping a community build a water reservoir, communities are accessing clean water. Years after we’ve helped a group of women launch a savings program, the group has continued to save, invest and earn.
Poverty is caused by the inequalities in the world. When you take action, you unleash waves of change that continue to grow for generations to come.
