International Women’s Day Celebration
International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the economic, political, and social achievements of women, took place for the first time on March 8th, 1911. Many countries around the world celebrate the holiday with demonstrations, educational initiatives, and customs such as presenting women with gifts and flowers.
The United Nations has sponsored International Women’s Day since 1975. When adopting its resolution on the observance of International Women’s Day, the United Nations General Assembly cited the following reasons: “To recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.”
To all of the women that we know, and all of the women that we don’t, the following pictures and picture quotes are in honor of all of you. Today, we celebrate women, and our contributions.
Remember, Woman by Reese Leyva
Remember, Woman, you were a born life giver, miracle creator, magic maker.
You were born with the heart of a thousand mothers, open and fearless and sweet.
You were born with the fire of Queens and conquerors, warrioress blood you bleed.
You were born with the wisdom of sages and shamans, no wound can you not heal.
You were born the teller of your own tale before none should you kneel.
You were born with an immeasurable soul reaching out past infinity.
You were born to desire with passion, abandon, and to name your own destiny.
Remember, Woman, remember, you are more than you can see.
Remember, Woman, remember you are loved endlessly.
Remember, Woman, your power and grace, the depth of your deep-sea heart.
Never forget you are Woman, divine, as you have been from the start.
