Join Me on The Bridge.
Yesterday was International Women’s Day. I am so proud of the women in my life for making this event such a success. I am so lucky to have such inspiring and strong women in my life. Women that will stop at nothing to make a difference, and work just as hard to make their dreams come true. It is a beautiful and strong support system.
The Join me on the Bridge campaign started in 2010 when women from Congo and Rwanda joined together on the bridge connecting their two countries, showing that they could build the bridges of peace and hope for the future. This action sparked a massive global movement, and last year they were joined by thousands of people on hundreds of bridges worldwide.
On International Women’s Day, 8 March, thousands of people showed that they are with the women of Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan and other war-torn countries.
We stood with these women to give them strength and to show we support their demands for peace and equality. Women are peace builders and with equality at the peace negotiation tables and governing bodies of their countries they will build a more peaceful world. Stronger women are building the bridges of peace for our future. With your support we will be even stronger.
International Womens Day is a day to inspire women and celebrate achievements.Because, lets face it, without us… the world just wouldn’t be the same. IWD is a global web of rich and diverse local activity that connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more.
So go, and tell that awesome woman in your life just how much she means to you. She deserves it.
