International Women's Day is a day where we celebrate women.
Tale as Old as TimeFor as long as I can remember, society has engrained into us that women should be beautiful, sensitive, and sweet. We should wear dresses and heels to look pretty. Put on makeup to flatter our feautures. Shave to be nice and smooth. Paint our nails to accentuate our outfits. Always be polite (even when we're uncomfortable). Cook nice meals for our family. And, clean the house to be effortlessly spotless. That's a women's role, right?
Capable of MoreWomen are capable of more than typical stereotypes. They are strong, smart, creative, and nurturing. We can anything. No one can hold us back from our dreams.
Empowering Women Can Save LivesEvery day pregnant women all over the world are having abortions. Many of them are killing their own child because they don't believe they are capable of being a good mother. They have fears about money, job sability, family, relationships, childbirth... (the list goes on and on). What would happen if we supported these women?
Pregnant women should be built up not torn down. They are carrying precious life inside their bodies. What they are doing is important and valuable. They are capable of protecting that baby and should be encouraged.
