Happy international womens day x I wish women around the world strength, courage and happiness on our day x I have my dad to thank for my commitment to womens rights and my allegiance to the wonderful women in my life who make me sparkle. He taught me about the need to fight for our rights and how important it is for a solid collective voice. He taught me to look out for misogynistic men, those who seek to harm - he showed by example. I am strong in spite of him. I wish you all you hope for today and in the future X x x

Yes, the men in our lives are part of the celebration of women's day too! Thank you for that great reminder. Happy International Women's Day to you and your dad.

Thank you for sharing your "strength, courage, and happiness" with all your World Pulse sisters.

I am certain that this October, in Salt Lake City Utah, USA, we will make known to the world that women's voices matter in all things. I am acting as an ambassador to the 2015 Parliament of the World's Religions http://ParliamentOfReligions.org. For the first time, this year, the parliament is having a "women's initiative."

In addition to asking my WP sisters and brothers to consider attending the parliament, I am working with World Pulse Sister Zeph https://www.worldpulse.com/en/community/users/sister-zeph, SHEROES United http://www.sheroesunited.org/, and One Billion Rising http://www.onebillionrising.org/events/women-of-the-world-we-rise/ to create a parade of people in support of social justice for women. Sister Urmila https://www.worldpulse.com/en/community/users/urmila-chanam/posts/34846 is bringing her menstrual hygiene campaign to the parade event.

I would love to have a group join us in support of your efforts.
