Today is International Women’s Day. It’s going to be a day to celebrate the accomplishments of women and the contribution we make in the world, however we chose to do it.
Whether you are a stay at home mum, a student, a STEM professor, an athlete or anything else, it’s about YOU!
A number of important events are going to be happening today and you’re going to see a lot of news coverage, but you might not have heard about one particular campaign that has been kicked off by the female blogging community. It’s called #ThisisMe (was #SayNoToShiny) and I’d love it if each and every one of you could get involved.
The campaign is calling on you to post a picture of your face on social media with #ThisIsMe as a stand against a culture of perfection. Let’s show what female success looks like. Let’s rail against those pressures that say we should look a certain way, be a certain weight, wear a particular type of clothes or conform to a particular image. Let’s not feel inadequate. Let’s celebrate our success.
Let’s stand together to say it’s international women’s and this is what real, successful, wonderful women look like.
