Did you know that for every dollar a man makes, a woman makes 76 cents in America, and it’s been like that for 10 years now. Gender inequality is making our world a less awesome place to live in, and not just in the U.S. One in 9 girls are married before the age of 15, and each day 800 woman die from preventable causes related to childbirth and pregnancy. Those are just a couple of reasons of why today needs to exist.
Int’l Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the beautiful and strong women in our communities around the world. When we invest in women and girls, it’s a brighter future for everyone.
Today’s Google Doodle is a representation that women in our modern society can aspire to become anybody they want to be. You name it, they can do it. Scientist, musician, athlete, engineer….anything.
Starting today, work to make gender inequality non-existent, and make the world a better place for today. Start by signing petitions ending child marriagesr supporting online funds hat support maternal health programs around the world. Be a mentor by giving advice, time and support to a woman or girl who you think would appreciate your help. Consider a position or encourage a woman to get involved politics, we need more voices to be heard. See a woman-directed or produced movie and support their work. Last but not least, remember that feminism isn’t just for females, so ladies, get out there, and tell your man how they can help make the world more fair for woman. Respect the women in your life and be kind to them.
