International Women's Day

Growing up, International Women's Day was a very celebrated holiday. Women dressed up and were given flowers and chocolates. But only now I truly understand what it really means to be a woman and why we have to fight for equal rights. I'm teaching my daughter to stand tall and peruse her passion, to stay curious and read a lot, to be kind and forgiving, and to not believe in "happily ever after", but to rely on building the happiness with hard work and patience.
