International Women's Day 2020

By Charlotte Robinson, March 08, 2020
As we celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th we acknowledge it’s been a disappointing week for American women with Senator Elizabeth Warren discontinuing her bid for the presidency. Now we’re back to a race between three elderly white men. As we head towards another milestone of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment when women were granted the right to vote in America on August 18th 1920 we reflect on how far we’ve come & yet how much further we need to go for national & global gender equality. Gloria Steinem stated, "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." This year the theme for International Women's Day is Each For Equal. An equal world is an enabled world & individually we're all responsible for our own thoughts & actions - all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations & celebrate women's achievements. Collectively each one of us can help create a gender equal world. So let's all be #EachforEqual because equality is not a women's issue it's a business issue & gender equality is essential for economies & communities to thrive. The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health & wealth so let's make it happen. Women are succeeding & moving forward but we need to up our game & do whatever it takes once & for all to make #EachforEqual a reality.
