Today is International Women's Day! Growing up, this holiday was always a big deal in my Polish culture. I know it isn't as widely celebrated in North America, but it is gaining momentum globally. It is often associated with political issues of gender equality but I'm not going to talk about burning bras today.
I think femininity is a beautiful thing and I definitely embrace it. Us girls need to stick together and more than anything, support one another. Blogging has exposed me to such an amazing group of women that is always positive, supportive, and caring. Unfortunately, that is not always the case in social media. There are so many negative comments out there that are between girls. Gossip, rumours, hateful words --- none if it is necessary. That is not the kind of world I would want my future daughter to grow up in. I want her to be confident and proud of who she is.
My wish for today is that us women refrain from the negative comments and lift one another up. Here's to good women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.
