We are very fortunate to live in a country where, for the most part, there is little gender discrimination. However, women in developing countries don’t have this privilege, which is something we can’t even fathom, as we’ve all grown up in a relatively stable society.
Tomorrow, March 8 is International Women’s Day. On this day, please remember how fortunate we are to be women – educated, college-attending, free women.
The American Association of University Women is helping to push a bill, the Global Resources and Opportunities for Women to Thrive
Act (H.R. 2965/S. 2069). This legislation will help the US help other countries, specifically developing countries, to support their women so they can be independent. This aid will cover everything from promoting women’s rights, helping women get jobs, giving education, and simply giving women the right to feel and be secure in their own lives.
International Women’s Day is meant to create awareness of the inequalities of gender roles in other countries, and helping women everywhere have the same opportunities as men.
The meaning behind this day is very important, so help women by educating yourselves about this problem.
