I am one day late.

http://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme

With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away - there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.

And while we know that gender parity won't happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. Plus, there's indeed a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support.

So we can't be complacent. Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

International Women's Day is not country, group or organisation specific. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. So together, let's all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let's all Press for Progress.

 

IWD campaign theme continues all year

March 8 sees the annual IWD campaign theme kick off for the year ahead, although many groups around the world adopt and promote the campaign theme from early in the year. The IWD campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize collective action. The campaign theme does not end on International Women's Day. It's just the start. Throughout the year many groups worldwide adopt the IWD campaign theme for further campaign work, gender-focused initiatives, continuing activity and events. A great example of this was in 2017 when the USA Women's Hockey Team went on to adopt the #BeBoldForChange IWD campaign theme to later rally for equal pay, boycotting the national finals unless a suitable deal was struck. Many fans and further teams supported the campaign.


Collectively we can all play a part

Collective action and shared responsibility for driving gender parity is what makes International Women's Day successful. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."

Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900's, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in 1911. International Women's Day belongs to all communities everywhere - governments, companies, charities, educational institutions, networks, associations, the media and more. Whether through a global conference, community gathering, classroom lesson or dinner table conversation - everyone can play a purposeful part in pressing for gender parity.

So make International Women's Day YOUR day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women. Press for Progress!


Celebrating campaign themes each year

For International Women's Day 2017 and beyond, individuals and organisations were encouraged to #BeBoldforChange by taking ground breaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women. Many influencers around the world committed to bold action to accelerate gender parity, acknowledging their responsibility to do what they can to forge a more gender inclusive world. Have you submitted your #BeBoldforChange action yet?

Each one of us - with women, men and non-binary people joining forces - can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over. We have urgent work to do - together.


Ladies, make a choice and taste 😉. I am going to start cleaning now and to demonstrate I am 100 % in favor of equal opportunities, parity, boldness and many other good things in life I have added a picture of objects treated as men. What a bad girl I am.

Making a choice from this list is a bit like robbing the cradle - for me.  But I will make a choice anyway for the sake of women everywhere!  (That doesn't mean a  thing)  

I am going to choose Margarita.  I'll have two please.  And I'd like to reserve two for tomorrow also.

I will follow up with Tequila!  Oooh.  Look at Vin.  Yes Vin in the morning with a shot of sparkling water!

Then I'll try another Margarita on Sunday.  Again make that two.

... [wink]

Oh, I'll take all of them on a trial basis (if I kept them all, that would be greedy, but I need to try them out)  then I can decide which ones I'll keep for good.Kind of like the Bachelorette. (My guilty pleasure)

But, my first choices would be Martini, Cafe (he looks like Matt Boomer - gorgeous), and I do like Rhum. 

Guess it doesn't really matter if these men are dumb as a post.

But you know who  I think is the most beautiful man?

Misha!

Beautiful man, on attention for his woman, beautiful body . . .
[a3b3a2471a876224d5f44951e5adf0ee] 

He is jumping for his love . . . flying through the air for her . . . sigh. He had big, blue eyes, ohhh . . . yummy.

I wouldn't even require a trial run . . .

He is a gorgeous man!  He was married to Jessica Lange once upon a time wasn't he?
