We are still marching because we are still striving for equality. It is 2018, 100 years since women got the vote, we are not prepared to wait another 100 years. We need progress, accelerated progress.

Our collective voice, our community values, our shared vision enable our 17k strong network to #beboldforchange (#iwd17 theme) & to #pushforprogress (#iwd18 theme).

Clarity: “Women’s rights are human rights”.

Communication: “Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women”.

Connection: “A strong woman stands up for herself, a stronger woman stands up for everybody else”.

hannah3Community: “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women, who have her back”.

Collaboration: “Deeds not words”.

Confidence:  “Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them”.

Challenge: “We must carry forward the work of the women who came before us & ensure our daughters have no limits on their dreams, no obstacles to their achievements & no remaining ceilings to shatter”.

Change:  “Teach your daughters less about fitting into glass slippers & more about shattering glass ceilings”.

We are still marching because we are still striving for equality. It is 2018, 100 years since women got the vote, we are not prepared to wait another 100 years. We need progress, accelerated progress.

We need to have voice.

We need to have agency.

We need a call to arms.

We need action today, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year.hannah1
