I never got to write about International Women’s Day, but I wanted to finally get the chance to put this blog post together. How can we not appreciate a day where we can celebrate the progressive change that influential and inspiring women have achieved for our world and each other. The women above are just a few who have created an enormous impact on myself and others.
As a woman and minority, I like to address how lucky I am to live in a generation where social change is more accepting. The struggle and fight for women rights, along with war, racism, and hatred still remains. Women strive for more acceptance and equal rights everyday, where this kind of initial action is a powerful motive and stepping stone in ending gender inequality. While this strive is ongoing, women must continue to educate everyone that women rights is human rights. As an Asian American woman, I’m confident and proud that woman of all races can create inspiring change for themselves and others. I have no intention of being cheesy. I want to be completely straightforward, and address that this is a very important issue to me. Speak out, and be brave. Rosie the Riveter said, “We can do it!” And I say, “We can ALL do it!”
