Depending on where you live in the world it is already International Women’s Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this celebration, allow me to share some information about this day.
While there have been various Women’s Day Celebrations in different parts of the world historically, it was in 1977 that the U.N. (United Nations) invited members to proclaim March 8th as the U.N. day for Women’s Rights and World Peace. Many countries now actively celebrate this day.
For both men and women this is an important day to note. We humans, of this planet Earth, cannot move forward without all of us working towards a goal of harmony, peace and growth for ourselves and our planet.
International Women’s Day is about encouraging the freedom and rights all women are entitled to and deserve.
Some excellent resources to find out more.

I cannot emphasize enough the huge importance of increasing awareness of this day and it’s purpose. It is through continuing support and education that many of the freedoms now occurring for women on our planet, in many countries, will continue to thrive for everyone’s future. It is through a sense of purpose, drive and determination that these most excellent goals can be achieved.
Never ever forget – We’re worth the extra effort needed so that all women can be free to be all that we can be!

Interesting information about International Women’s Day March 8th, 2014. There are still countries in this world where women have no rights, not even to an education. Through awareness and proactive collectives these barriers can be broken down.
Hi! Thank you for both your reblog and your excellent comments! Very, very much appreciated! And I agree with you completely!
