Each year on March 8th women all around the world are celebrated. For 2023, the global theme is #EmbraceEquity. Each year a different theme is chosen to bring attention to women rights and the various challenges that women face, while highlighting the amazing things that women have done and will continue to do moving forward.
If you are a woman on this day dedicated to you, try to take time to honor yourself. Celebrate all your achievements and think about a few women in your life that you’re proud of let them know that they are true superheroes.
Without women, this world would not exist how it is today. Women take on many challenges yet continue to change the world. Mothers, daughters, wives, professionals, and all women everywhere deserve to be recognized and celebrated.
