Celebrating International Women's Day 2019




March 8th is International Women’s Day - an occasion to celebrate the spirit of womanhood. Read more about celebrating International Women’s Day 2019:


Women are a very important part of this world. If you want to know the value of a lady, ask someone who does not have a mother, sister, daughter or a wife. The modern woman works hard in the office as well as in the house. She makes the home; hence she is also known as the homemaker.
Women manage the family and look after all the members of the family hence she should be respected and supported.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter


How Can the World Become a More Balanced Place?

The world can become a more balanced place when women and men are treated equally and both genders respect each other. A balanced work environment represents equal opportunity to women as well as male employees. Some men like to silence women at the meetings in office or while talking at home. That should not be the case.

#BalanceforBetter means that we should take steps for gender balance and equality. Practices such as female infanticide or female foeticide should end. Both genders should be paid equally well for the work which they do and the person who does the work should be given credit for whatever efforts they have put in. 


How to Celebrate Women’s Day 2019?
  • You can organize a party with your female friends and go out for lunch or dinner.

  • You can create some special activities for this day in office.

  • You can provide rest to your aged mother or beloved sister and offer a helping hand in household chores.

  • Celebrate the achievements of women by organizing an event or campaign.

List of Women Achievers

There are many great women who have achieved a lot in life despite various struggles and hurdles. It does not only include celebrities. Even normal and ordinary females have worked hard to gain success or recognition. Indira Gandhi, Mary-Kom, and several other Indian women have reached the pinnacles of success and risen to the top. Thus, we cannot undermine anybody’s efforts whether they are women or men. Each individual should be given credit for what they have done in their life.


It’s Still a Challenging World

There are many places where women are not allowed to do so many things. They do not have freedom to marry a person of their choice; go to school or even vote. The government and media are slowly trying to change the perceptions of the people.

The world is a different place for men and women. Some countries rate high on the gender equality ratio and gender balance however there are still many places considered inaccessible to women. The recent #RighttoPray movement in India brought together females from various communities who insisted on being allowed to enter places of religious significance where they are otherwise banned from entering.

Thus, the situation is slowly changing and improving. There are many who still think that women are not equal but who can be blamed? A lot of people feel that the film industry’s portrayal of women is not good. In many movies, a female character is projected in an undignified manner.


Annual Celebration Every Year

Every year since 1910, women’s day is celebrated on March 8th globally. The social, political, cultural and economic achievements of women are celebrated. Whether it is in sports, governments or corporate boardrooms, let us all strive to create a balanced world for all.

Mothers can teach their sons to respect their sisters and other girls. Inculcate values like gender-equality in your children. Treat your children well and educate and respect them whether they are boy or girl. 

So, what are you doing this year for International Women’s Day 2019 and how will you try to ensure a balanced and better world for everybody? Do let us know in the comments below. Let us celebrate the spirit of womanhood and start by respecting women at home. What special thing will you do for your sister or friend? How will you try to make the world a better place for women starting from your home, family or workplace? Do share your thoughts and enjoy this day by making it a happy and balanced world.
