International Women’s Day 2017

Happy International Women’s Day!

My apologies that this blog is brief, but I wanted to make a contribution towards International Women’s Day in some way.

I wrote a quick blog about this day last year.  I mentioned what feminism means to me and the importance of it in today’s world, which still strongly applies. You only have to look at the recent news story about Emma Watson who appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, for which she was criticised because a feminist can’t flaunt her breasts. Of course the biggest thing has to be Donald Trump becoming President of the United States, in that wealth overrides his sexist and racist attitudes and past allegations of harrassment towards women.

I do believe that one day complete gender equality will be achieved. It will take more strong and powerful women around the world united to combat everyday sexism, alongside with men who also want to achieve gender equality.

 

Happy reading and blogging!
