CELEBRATING WOMEN OF THE WORLD
ALL THE LADIES IN THE HOUSE...THIS ONE'S FOR YOU!
Tomorrow's International Women's Day, and let me just tell you, women are incredibly STRONG + BRAVE. I've traveled a bit and lived in several developing countries and I have to say I am continuously blown away by the abilities women have to persevere for their families and themselves... and somehow still find joy in the midst of it all!
Like Verediana who wakes up at 4:30 a.m. before work every day to cook breakfast and then stay up until 10 p.m. to start cooking dinner from scratch for her family. Or Helen who carries heavy jugs of water for miles to cook, clean and bathe with. There are endless stories out there of incredible women who inspire us.
So we are putting the spotlight on the women around the world who get up every day to overcome obstacles and rise above their circumstances to show the world what true strength looks like.
I'm headed to New York for the UN Commission on the Status of Women where stories of affliction, trauma and deprivation will also highlight ways to overcome these tragedies for women in nations around the globe. Topics will include strategies for women's empowerment, social protective systems, access to public services, sustainable infrastructure for gender equality, and more!
Together we will unite and seek embetterment for one another's well being and pave a brighter future for the girls that will one day take the torch and lead us into a brighter future.
