Balance is Better, it is the theme this year. Everyone is promoting it and talking about gender equality. They are saying that there should be gender equality in our society and including UN Women and the United Nations support this theme – #balanceisbetter.
Gender equality is not just a taboo or an issue prevalent in our societies but it is now like the disease that not only impacts women but it affects us all. With not stretching on feminism as I’m not a feminist to the core I would say this day and perhaps every day let’s get together to achieve gender equality, which will create a better future for all.
As a woman, I have struggled slice by slice all through my life and still struggling with patriarchy and gender inequality in the workplace. Quit my job for my daughter to bring her up alone. I have no helping hand to support mentally and financially and what not I have been facing, but I’m not here to write about my story, in fact, no one’s story. I urge and wish to impact the women out there to be on your own and be strong in their decisions no matter they can be terrible but if you believe in them, in reality, no one can stop you.
With my last year’s blog where I have given some examples and quotes of successful and strong women, I would like this year to be talking about equal rights for all humans. For me, a woman’s day is every day. Every single day the achievements and celebration of women shall be honoured and revered.
International Women’s Day is gleefully and profligately celebrated all over the world idolizing the notable contributions and achievements of women who have excelled in their corresponding domains. It is not essential that these women have to be the CEOs or owners of multinational companies; they can be an average woman making little or big contributions in their own way to the society. The agenda is to celebrate women’s achievement and raise awareness against bias in our own way. Take the action for gender equality and share equal ownership for driving gender parity on this International Women’s Day.
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 organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.” So make International Women’s Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.
What I feel and wish to convey is a balanced world which is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world?

Such a wonderful statement from a one of the strong lady in the world! I’ll not be talking about Happy International Women’s Day, Nah, well every year I do so, we all do so, sending memes, quotes, messages – which is absolutely fine!
But does it actually reach out to the women across the globe with the same intensity and passion to be different and in love with oneself? Yes, I’m talking about loving yourself, being the best of you, standing out against all odds and shine like a diamond. Let everyone know who you are!

You are a woman of your choice
You are born to love
You are born to give birth
You are a magic maker and a creator of this lovely world!
Every man should respect you for their existence
But does he understand, is the question!
But does the society give her all the right she is worthy of!
You are a horse running alone in the wind
And he tries to tame you,
He tries to thrash you, crush you like a dried leaf,
Tries to hold you back, and make you feel like,
You are picked and dragged through an air of violent nightfall
He loves you with the promise of #Being #there
Then why does he ditch you to get #soldout
He kisses you to be yours forever
Then why does he rape you every night
He educates you to be successful then why does he assault you
He wants you to be the CEO of his company,
Then why does he pulls you back by bitching around
He says I’m your BFF, Best friend forever
Then why does he leaves you lonely in pain and tears
And this continues timelessly and shamelessly
The walls around her heart try to keep her contented in soreness
But the end to molestation, rape, assault, betrayal doesn’t conclude
These ruthless societies never give a sigh of relief
These hypocrites are ruining her soul within
Does she have a choice?
Yes, of course, she did have one, in fact, many
Until she recognizes her own spirit and strength
She is the fire, she shines like a diamond
She is like a rivulet gushing subtly making her own way
She chooses to be strong and beautiful
No matter what comes she kill the evil with her charm
She is impeccable in defying what he does to her
She is bestowed with forgiveness
She is a separatist from the critics
She accepts her mistakes and never gives up
She enlightens her kids’ soul
She is the heart of every family
No matter how she is torn apart
She rises above from worldly unchasteness
Coz, only God can see her virtuous soul underneath
She is the woman of her own choice
She is the #freespirit
Here’s a beautiful compilation of #freespirit – International Women’s Day
Share and spread the word so that at least a woman can help a woman to fight the evils. Apparently, the day when a woman will become a woman’s best friend, the society will nurture.
There is a piece in me that like to tenderly imagine my maverick and seditious soul. But, precisely, I love to have a picky and cosy relationship with my soul that can rub up against a little bit, putting me alive.
