Talking About International Women's Day - 8th March

In our latest blog, we talk about International Women’s Day - What it is, how you can participate and some words from our female founder, Kizzie Nicholson.


International Women's Day (IWD) is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is held annually on March 8th to commemorate the struggle for women's rights and to advocate for gender equality. IWD is a day to recognise the challenges that women face and to celebrate their successes and contributions to society. It is a day to inspire action and to create a more inclusive and equal world for all women.


IWD matters because women continue to face inequalities and discrimination in many aspects of their lives, from the workplace to politics to their personal lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has only magnified these inequalities, with women disproportionately affected by job losses and a rise in care-giving responsibilities. IWD is an opportunity to draw attention to these issues and to advocate for change (Source: www.internationalwomensday.com)





There are many ways to get involved in IWD.


You can support women-led businesses and organisations, attend events and workshops, participate in online discussions and campaigns, or simply show your support for women on social media. You can also make a personal commitment to promoting gender equality in your own life by challenging gender stereotypes, advocating for equal pay and opportunities, and being an ally to women in your community. IWD is a day to come together and make a positive impact, so let's all do our part to create a better world for women.(Source: www.internationalwomensday.com)




Here, our founder shares some words to celebrate this day:


“As an award-winning female business owner, I am so grateful to be able to celebrate International Women's Day and reflect on my own journey as a woman in business. Being a female entrepreneur has been both exciting and empowering, and I am proud to bring my unique perspectives, creativity, and empathy to my industry.


I have faced challenges along the way, however, I am encouraged by the many women who are breaking down barriers and making their mark in the world of business.


Balancing work and personal life is important for everyone, and I have learned that success is not just about working hard, but also about taking care of myself and finding a balance that works for me - working smart, per se! This includes setting boundaries, making time for self-care, and surrounding myself with supportive people who believe in me.


International Women's Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of women and to acknowledge the positive impact that women are making in their communities, industries, and the world. I am proud to be part of this community of women who are coming together to celebrate each other, uplift each other, and support each other in their journeys. Whether it's through social media, community events, or simply reaching out to a friend, we are all connected by our shared experiences and our shared vision for a brighter future.


To me, International Women's Day is a time to celebrate my own success as a woman in business and to recognize the impact that women are making in the world. I am grateful for the opportunities and challenges that have helped me to grow and succeed, and I am committed to continuing to uplift and support other women in their journeys.”
