International Women’s Day celebrated on 8th March every year is a time to commemorate the achievements of women, reflect their progress and call for greater changes required. There are many ways you can make this day a milestone in your life. Honor that special woman in your life, join a social activity, enjoy womanhood and analyze how you can help improving things in your surroundings.
Here are few ideas to celebrate International Women’s Day this year:
Follow the Theme
Every year the United Nations Organization decides a theme for Women’s Day. This year’s theme is ‘Equality for women is progress for all’. The theme emphasizes on the vital role of gender equality, women empowerment, and eradication of poverty and enjoyment of human rights in socio-economic development of women across the globe.
Similarly ‘Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture It!’ is the clarion call of UN Women’s Beijing +20 campaign.
You can join NGOs, activists or governments across the globe to work for these themes. Find the groups in your locality that work for women empowerment or raise your voice through social media. You can also start your own campaign for equality and empowerment.
Many organizations work to raise funds for impoverish women. They use the money for shelter, food, medicine and education of women and children. Look for an authentic and reliable organization and join them in the noble cause. You can also contribute by funding them.
Contributing your time and skills is another thoughtful donation. Spend time at an old age home. They really need a touch of love then your money. Teaching the less fortunate some skills that could help them earn a livelihood is also great.
If you do not want to go at the mass level but like to celebrate the day with an individual, gifting them a thoughtful present is also adorable. A gift for Women’s Day should reflect the beauty, power and grace of a woman. Whether it is your mom, wife, best friend or a mentor, few options like gemstone jewelry is perfect for all. Choose a symbolic piece of jewelry.
It could be a birthstone pendant or a ring studded with her favorite stone. Considering precious metal with a precious stone, will double the drama. Luxurious yet sophisticated, a well-picked piece of jewelry can greatly reflect a woman’s personality. Make sure it also suits her taste and lifestyle.
