Wednesday 8th March 2017 marks International Women’s Day (IWD) and the internet is flooded with great stories of women from around the world who have achieved great things. And quite rightly so, because as a gender females are still not treated equally or recognised for their greatness.
What is International Women’s Day all about?
It is said that IWD was started to help raise the issue of gender inequality and for women to be recognised as a significant equal gender.
For women the ‘confidence gap’ I always talk about still exists, in the workplace men still have the lead, in politics the number of men far outweigh women. Even in women’s education, globally, there remains an unfair gap between the genders. Not to mention that violence towards women is still much higher than that of men. Is it any wonder that so many women lack the true confidence they need to stand up and be treated as equals?
I think women are making tremendous progress BUT the gap between gender equality is still incredibly large and we need to close it.
International Women’s Day is about bringing women together across the world to help others recognise the inequalities still faced by women – It is also a celebration of the achievements of women who achieved great things despite these barriers.
The reality is the gender gap exists and it won’t close on it’s own. IWD is a day that helps bring that female energy into a collective force, we are stronger when we stand together – and together we can do great things.
How will you celebrate IWD? And what would you like to see happen in the next 5-years?
In Celebration Of Inspirational Women Day
I think it’s only fitting to share a note today to thank all the amazing, inspiring women who have supported the Roberta Style Lee Podcast and shared their inspirational stories.
Get Inspired By Women In Business, Women With Ideas, Women Doing Good…
The women on my podcast are amazing and you are simply missing out by not tuning in. I’ve done the hard work and hustled to get these extraordinary women onto my show so you can tap into the fierce female force which exists around the globe. You can listen and learn from these ladies who are doing incredible things. They share their tips and tricks for success – they talk about what it is that makes them tick and how they deal with the difficult times too. It’s not all a bed of roses and this isn’t a podcast designed to promote their business or ideas – it’s about their stories as women following their dreams.
Real Authentic Women Who Care
These ladies on my show are real, authentic and give a damn about making a difference. So if you care about doing good – then you’ll love the series. We have the opportunity to learn so much from other women, if we just take the time to listen. Check out the trailer here on Youtube https://lnkd.in/giyQr-F – these women are from around the globe, this isn’t just a London thing.
I am so lucky to have the opportunity to interview and make friends with so many kick-ass women – it is their energy and commitment to getting things done that continues to inspire me to the best coach, stylist, podcast host and business woman that I can be.
Life isn’t perfect and it’s good to know that even those that seem so successful still have to cope with the same struggles as the rest of us!
