Today, the 8th of March is THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY. So this morning, when you checked your newsfeed and Instagram you most definitely came across posts about the International Women’s Day. If you haven’t heard about, well Good Morning then!
But what is the International Women’s Day about?
Generally, the IWD is to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The earliest event to honor women, named „National Woman’s Day was held on February 28, 1909, in New York. Its original idea was to commemorate the movement for women’s rights.
It´s a celebration! Be happy and celebrate what you have achieved in life.

Now that I have your attention... Today is International Women’s Day - March 8th. And I’m proud to be joining real women in a united voice - by wearing a t-shirt with a statement that represents a moment when a woman was ignored trying to say “no” to sex. Let’s remove the grey area around consent. Because every shade of no deserves respect! Visit @_50shadesofno to buy a shirt and raise money for Project Consent, to further awareness, education and conversation about consent. 📷 @pixjj #internationalwomensday #50shadesofno #pressforprogress #empoweringwomen #womenempowerment

Happy international Women’s day to my number 1! Beautiful, hard working and hilarious. You truly are my first place today. Your walk through life and the transparency you’ve had while taking it on, has made me who I am and I thank you so much for that! Trials, victories and everything in between you’ve always been an encouraging and uplifting tone in my life and that means the world to me. You’ve taught me the impact in which words carry and to always value giving positive ones to others so freely. So from you, I’m better to others and that’s what this life is all about. Finding the keys and opening the doors of opportunity all while trusting in God to make His way. 😜Love you @jobes1 😍😘
