Alone We Have Power. Together We Have Impact! International Women's Day: #EachForEqual
by Jenny Zhu on 1 comment
As we quickly slide into March, there’s a lot more to look forward to this month than the coming of spring and St. Patrick’s Day parades. International Women’s Day falls on March 8th but, of course, we all know women should be celebrated all month (okay, all year) long!
Officially, International Women’s Day offers an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate women’s contributions to society, raise awareness for gender parity and inspire support for organizations that help women globally.
While women’s issues have been front and center for quite some time, International Women’s Day, a UN-sanctioned global holiday, has its roots in 1909 America when protesters took to the streets to object to inhumane working conditions in the garment industry. In 1911, more than 1 million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland attended rallies focused on suffrage, representation, education and workers’ rights. Over the next several years, more countries marked the holiday on March 8th and the UN officially marked it as an official holiday in 1975.
It’s incredible to note that, while we’ve been talking about equality for woman for more than 100 years, the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap report states that gender parity won’t happen for another 200 years. We’ve got a lot more work to do.
The 2020 International Women's Day campaign has set its sights on reducing that number by focusing on year-round calls-to-action. This year’s theme, #EachforEqual, will underscore the importance that an equal world is an enabled world. As a woman-led company that employees more than 60% women, you can be sure Lush Décor champions this initiative and the idea that each of us can make a difference through our own gestures – ordinary or extraordinary – as we work together to bridge the equality gap.
You can help by spreading the #eachforequal hashtag on your favorite social sites. Share a photo (or twenty) of you, your family and friends making the equal sign with your arms – this year’s symbol for the #eachforequal campaign. You can also use #IWD2020, #InternationalWomensDay and #SeeHer.
Let’s help make this one of the biggest, most inclusive International Women’s Day celebrations in recent times. Alone, women have power. Together, we have impact.
Happy International Women’s Month!
