On International Women's Day 2020,
I pause to celebrate the Voices of all women around the globe!
It is a quiet winter morning in my neighborhood but in the outside world, there is a loud outcry. The #EachforEqual hashtag is making its way throughout social media to bring awareness of this International Women's Day.
It is still unfathomable to me that all women around the globe are not being recognized as equal partners in society. After all, it is the 21st century and the women's movement for equality has been in the news since the 19th century. I am posing as citizens of the world, we become difference makers, united in our mission to recognize women as change agents and influential models for a younger generation. Each small effort to do so will bring us closer to understanding and promoting the Each for Equal movement.
I encourage you to take 3 minutes to view the video of the history of women's rights and spread the news that International National Women's Day should be celebrated beyond today.
Teachers, please consider using the above video and the IWD hashtag during Women's History Month as an informed call-to-action activity.
Each year since March 2015, I engage in Two Writing Teacher's Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.
Slicing allows me to ponder life, literacy, and learning, capturing small moments poetically
through writing, photography, and digital art.
