International Women’s Day ? (en)

Si vous êtes d'accord avec la phrase "les femmes et les hommes ne sont pas égaux aujourd'hui, mais ils devraient l'être", alors, vous pouvez vous qualifier de féministe." Michael Kimmel

What it means is that Gender equality is “ not just a fundamentally moral cause, it’s also an absolute no-brainer”, in the words of former IMF Chief Christine Lagarde. “ It holds the potential to boost growth, raise overall income per capita, tackle poverty, and reduce income inequality for people all over the world.” A total no-brainer. How should we overcome the current inequality?

The answer is not to talk about empowering women. Women never needed to be empowered. International Women’s Day is a celebration of women stepping into their power.

NO ONE OWN A WOMAN POWER or freedom.

You cannot grant what is already ours. We, as Women, do not wait for March 8 every year to reclaim our freedom and our power, campaign for equal pay and equal rights.

Our work now, is to rest into the power we already have. It’s about making

this a reality 365 days a year for all, everywhere.

Together, we will.

Together, we lead.

Together, we are unstoppable.
