IWD – volume 3

Happy International Women’s Day!!!!

IWD is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It’s also a day to do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women. Here is my final blog post in my IWD series with my #pressforprogress.

VOLUME 3

As mentioned in my previous post, last year on IWD I made a #beboldforchange pledge to buy from women owned businesses and companies that support women.

This year…

I will press for progress and challenge stereotypes and bias.

Basically I will:

  • question assumptions about women – “she needs a man in her life”… erm no, why?
  • challenge statements that limit women – if I hear “oh she can’t do that, she’s a girl” one more time… grrr!
  • use inclusive language – not just for gender, but disabilities, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation.

So if you’re going to gender stereotype around me… watch out!

Hope you all have a lovely IWD!

Ciao, Anna x

  1. I am wanting to work on inclusive language too! It’s a weird process but super essential to rewire our brains to make our language more accepting. Awesome pledges!
