Let’s Create That Level Playing Field, It’s Overdue

I often say to myself, where would my children be without me, they look at me as though I am superwoman and some days I really feel that I am. Walking tall, chest puffed out. Dad is on hand but mum, there is something about mum, she knows everything. Truth be told and we have all been there, here are some days when I just want 2 minutes to myself and other times (more often than not) where I am falling over backwards to please them.

We owe so much to the women in our lives whichever role that they play, mother, auntie, sister, cousin etc. Today marks International Women’s day and it is a day of celebration for the accomplishments, the determination and the doors which are being kicked down.

Today marks International Women’s Day and it is a day of celebration. We are celebrating the incredible women that juggle it all, and usually juggling it all with a smile on their faces.

I love offering the services that I provide and supporting great women in leadership roles. I could not imagine doing anything else.

I admire many women, including:

  1. Rosa Parks, the American activist
  2. Oprah Winfrey, Media Mogul
  3. Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of USA
  4. Brené Brown, Author and Public speaker
  5. Malal Yousafzai, Young Activist
  6. Nadene Martin, the author of this blog (yep, that’s right!)

These women should be celebrated daily as they have all inspired so many of us, to reach for the stars and be unapologetic about being a woman.

How will you be celebrating today? I have organized an e-coffee date with some girlfriends over Zoom, we are going to share some good news stories and things we are most proud of. There will be no apologies here, did somebody say big up yourself sis?

Although things are changing, there is still a long way to go for many across the globe. In various countries, women are seen as not equal and it is really about creating a level playing field for everyone regardless of your gender.

Taken from the International Women’s Day website Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

Celebrate women’s achievements. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.

My favourite quote is from Michelle Obama, it goes:

Here’s to Strong Women
May We Be Them
May We Know Them
May We Raise Them
