It’s no secret women carry the world on their shoulders. I suggest that women are the ones who literally keep the world working, on the ground making sure the family is fed, and the business runs on time. Women do it all–from the ordinary day-to-day tasks of life, to heading a corporation. And if that were not enough, women are using their spare time (if they have any) to make the world a better place, promoting peace and working to clean the air we breathe. International Women’s Day is a day to recognize all women around the globe who do so much for so little. It’s a day for women from all countries to come together and recognize our similarities and differences, and to try to understand how we can help each other. Because no one should have to carry the world alone.
