Happy International Women's Day!! is a day to be proud! Stand up tall and shake your tail feathers because today is INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY! For those that don't know what International Women's day is, its a day that marks the celebration of achievements of women across all fields. IWD is  always celebrated on March the 8th, the first International Women's Day was held way back in 1911. And before you haters say anything, its not about being a raging feminist, or degrading mens achievements! It is simply a day to be proud of your personal achievements big or small, an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all women, as well as calling for greater equality through out the globe. 

There are tons of events all over the globe to get involved with to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women, with over 350 in the UK alone! Follow this link to the official IWD site to get involved! Make It Happen is the 2015 theme for the international women's day, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women. 

One suggestion i have to 'make it happen' for yourself would be to join the Female entrepreneur association 'Mission for March' ! The Female Entrepreneur Association is an online hub with the mission of inspiring and empowering women from around the world to turn their ideas into a reality, build successful businesses and live a life they love. I know were not all building businesses but its full of really inspirational quotes and tips! For the March mission all you do is Enter your details, with a goal you want to achieve by the end of march in mind. You will receive support through out the moth through a handy booklet guide and planner. Not only that you can join their Facebook group for support from great women all pushing to achieve something! What ever your goal, if it be personal, business related, IWD focussed, this will help you get to the finish line! 

Use today as your stepping stone to make a difference, think globally and act locally! Continue to make everyday International Women's Day, try and do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding. Because at the end of the day if we don't push for a change who will!?
