Today is March 8 and it is International Women’s Day. I’d like to wish all of you a Happy International Women’s Day! The theme is #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021
A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.
So let’s all choose to challenge.
How can we help forge a gender-equal world?
1. Celebrate women’s achievement.
2. Raise awareness against bias.
3. Take action for equality.
As it is International Women’s Day today, I am asking myself, “How will I #ChooseToChallenge?”
I thought about my own specific context, which is a 34-year-old female expat teacher, surrounded by a community of women in a similar situation, and wondered what sort of thing I could do to challenge, which would truly make a positive difference for women in our EET community?
