International Women’s Day

08 Mar

Many years ago, when I worked as a teacher in South Africa, a male colleague remarked, “You are a feminist, why don’t you drive the school bus?”

Our students were bussed home after their extra-curricular activities and it was the male teachers who were in charge of driving them home. 

I looked him in the eye and said, “The day we get paid the same as men, I will!”

It has been a long, long road to achieve parity with our male counterparts and the struggle continues to this very day.

In honor of every woman, this day, I would like to say, “You are worthy. You are strong. Let the fires of divine discontent continue to fuel you as women globally fight for recognition of their contributions and achievements.” 

Be empowered, fierce and courageous!
