Happy International Women’s Day and Happy Women’s History Month. Today as we celebrate the significant contribution women have made globally in creating a better world concurrently we will not lose sight of the fact that there is still a long way to go to achieve gender equality worldwide.

My greatest inspiration in my life has always been my mother, Beverly Holness, a woman of strength, care, love, patience and kindness, who has shaped my thoughts and actions to always live a life that is meaningful to the world.

Also, I posted here only a handful of the infinite number of women who have contributed significantly to the wellbeing of our world.

So as we reflect and celebrate today, we must also continue the courage to achieve gender equality worldwide. “Legal restrictions have kept 2.7 billion women from accessing the same choice of jobs as men. Less than 25 per cent of parliamentarians were women”. – United Nations
