Sarah: Hey, Emma! Did you know that today is International Women’s Day?

Emma: Of course, Sarah! Happy International Women’s Day to you! It’s such an important day to celebrate the achievements and strength of women around the world. The first time was in March 1911; the date was set for March 8, 1913. In 1996, the UN announced that the year would be dedicated to “celebrating the past, planning for the future” as its inaugural yearly theme. The UN first commemorated it in 1975.

Sarah: Absolutely! I love how it’s not just about recognizing the accomplishments but also highlighting the ongoing efforts towards gender equality. International Women’s Day honours the contributions made by women throughout history and serves as a platform for promoting women’s rights and gender equality. The early 20th-century labour and feminist movements are the origins of the movement.

Sarah: Absolutely. I’m grateful for the women in my life who have been role models, supporting me and showing me what strength and determination look like. and I got some messages like:

Cheers to the women who will not submit! The women who battle silently daily. who, when things are hard, have tremendous reservoirs of resilience. who show love and bravery as leaders. To the women who inspire me, here’s to you.

Happy International Women’s Day to my heart, my house, my peaceful reserve, and everything else.

I hope for a world where women achieve unprecedented success and opportunities abound. Cheers to Women’s Day!

On this International Women’s Day, let us pay tribute to the women who bravely battle every day to improve the world. who inspire young females. They provide chances they have never had. This is a tribute to all women.

You are my pillar of strength and stability. I wouldn’t be half the person I am now without you. To the strongest lady I have ever known, happy Women’s Day.

Sarah: And it’s heartening to see the progress being made globally. More women are entering STEM fields, breaking the glass ceiling in corporate boardrooms, and leading movements for social justice.

Emma: That’s a positive shift, for sure. We should celebrate those achievements while also acknowledging the work that still needs to be done in areas like reproductive rights, representation, and combating gender-based violence.
