International Women's Day

With it being International Women's Day, I thought I'd do a little post on my thoughts.

Being a woman myself, I take matters concerning our gender to heart (like most of us), especially when you see that women still have to protest and march for simple human rights. It's not just our country, it's for the other women in less fortunate countries too. We are more privileged than other countries women, but it's great to see campaigns such as He for She where Emma Watson is an ambassador (learn more here).

There have been many incidents where women have been looked down upon and constantly stereotyped. I'm not sure when, but I've always felt independent and wanted to do things my own way, I will always reach the top shelf even though I'm a shorty (5ft2in) I'll put together furniture myself (and I read the manual, that's what it's there for) and that I don't need a man to do things for me. Perhaps it was just because it's the 21st century and there's a lot of messages out there for women to be strong and independent.

I think it's important for everyone, male and female to work together, and hopefully help where we can in less fortunate countries. Every one deserves basic human rights and respect.

I didn't want to be too preachy on this post, but just wanted to talk about an important matter on International Women's Day.
