Good morning, sugas! We all know how powerful and strong we women are. Women face challenges every single day and we’re still fighting for our rights today! In honor of this International Women’s Day. I’m gonna give you a little history about this day, so let’s dive in honey!
In 1908, 15,000 women in New York City were marching and protesting for their right to have better pay, shorter working hours, and the right to vote. That’s some powerful stuff, suga! Now, of course we slowly started getting recognized for our efforts and countries are acknowledging International Women’s Day. Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland started celebrating in 1911. However, the UN officially announced it would acknowledge and celebrate the day in 1975.. That’s a lot of time y’all!
Now that we got that covered, let’s talk about our sistas, yall! The Million Woman March first happened in October 1997. This march was organized by Phile Chionesu who was a grassroots organizer. The march was based on three things. repentance, restoration, and community bonds.
Y’all…we are so AMAZING I think we deserve a glass of champagne! Women are empowering and strong, especially our amazing group of ladies! There is no doubt that we still have work to do but I know we got this, suga. Share and tag us in your posts about how you’re going to celebrate International Women’s Day.
