I feel humble that day, and I know in my heart what a great day it is.
This year, I'm having a treat to a high tea....and in remembrance, with others.
It is nothing too special, but just to be in the moment.What women have had to endure, has been to me a huge wake up!
God bless all those who went before us.
I don't do anything special to celebrate International Women's Day either, but I do acknowledge its being and share it with other people.
I think it's important to recognise that women, in the past and in the present, have made a lot of sacrifices and worked very hard to receive recognition and enjoy rights as men do. I think it's equally as important to recognise that there is still a long way to go in many spheres of experience, and that what works for one set of women, may not work for another. In other words, we as individuals must not assume that all women want the same things and therefore insinuate our own values, attitudes and beliefs onto others.
Did this year by going to a lunch with Jacqui Dinan, as Guest Speaker.
She has written two books, each about the contributions of women in WWI, & WWII.
Found it very engaging, & enjoyed talking to the other ladies' at my table. We'd never met b4, but all got on well, & lively conversation ensued!
A most enjoyable time had by all! Hope to do same next year!
