The foundations for International Women’s Day were actually laid over one
hundred years ago in the early 1900’s, but the battle for women’s right rages
on to this day!
If you’re wondering what you can do to armor up and help fight the good fight on International Women’s Day and every day for women’s rights around the world, then you’ve
come to the right place.
HERE'S THREE WAYS TO STAND UP, CELEBRATE AND EMPOWER WOMEN ON
INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY
1. Support female-owned businesses
Female entrepreneurs, working moms and she-EO’S are working their
butts off all around us, every day. It only takes a little digging to find
them and no effort at all to choose to support them. You can do that
with your hard-earned dollars, or by dishing out the deets of your
favorite high-vibe women on your social media channels.
2. Join or create a wonder-woman network
Being a part of a network where women support women is a hugely
inspiring and rewarding place to be; we should know, that's what we're all about at Awaken Institute! Join our lady-tribe or build your own. Here are two ideas to get you started:
Create a book club with a focus on iconic female authors. You can start with A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay, Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde and The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood
Host fem film nights featuring films like Wild (2014), Hidden Figures (2016), Wonder Woman (2017) and Roma (2018)
3. Support relevant charities
Organizations around the globe are banding together to raise awareness
for women’s rights every day. Most of these are funded almost entirely
by charitable income and they need our support. Here are a few that
you could stand behind:
Don’t stop there. It’s time to start amplifying females voices in your workplace, give public
affirmation to those who perform well and, most importantly, make darn sure you share your love and support for the incredible, powerful ladies in your life this International Women’s Day.
At the Awaken Institute, empowering women in every way is our honor and our joy! If you want to be a part of the movement then we’d LOVE for you to join us.
