My Message: International Women's Day

I have seen an awful amount of negative comments towards International Women's Day today and quite frankly, I'm horrified! 100 years ago women were expected to be in the kitchen and being solely mothers, Today we are seeing female CEO's, philanthropists, Educators and Creators shaping the world! And still, women are the minority and often face adversity, bullying and troubles to climb to the top! We are still seeing huge amounts of females being forced into marriages, sexually assaulted, enduring female mutilation all across the world and STILL have a long way were gender equality will be 50/50! There is no patronisation or feminism in this message- purely that I'm proud to be a woman and very proud of female leaders who have done wonders for health, education and equality in the world!
