Today the 9th of August 2012 we celebrate Women’s Day in South Africa. Today is marked as a public holiday and during today’s public holiday we pay tribute and show our appreciation and respect to the fairest-sex namely WOMEN. Whether you are a loving mother, a caring wife, a sister, daughter, grandmother or an aunt, you are a WOMAN and within you lies the power to achieve many great things. “It’s said that behind every great leader /athlete / hero stands a mother”
In today’s modern day and age, a WOMAN can do just about anything she wants. Years ago women weren’t all that lucky. Women were seen as home-makers, care-givers, cooks and cleaners; women weren’t even allowed to vote, run a marathon, work on Aircraft Carriers or Submarines. They weren’t allowed to be police officers or be fire fighters. Women’s education was also restricted – “Universities only started allowing females to attend Universities in the late 1800s; even then, women just attended classes as they were not allowed to receive diplomas”. These are only a few obstacles that women had to overcome throughout the years.
Nowadays women are seen mostly as equal to men in the corporate world. “Well, most of the time” we can attend press-events, provide press statements, be home-owners, have high ranking positions, be the main-provider as well as be a single parent with legal rights. Women can rule the World!
Be a proud mother, a supporting sister and a loving aunt, not only on Women’s Day but every-day; be the best women you can be – there is greatness inside of you, respect yourself and teach others around you to do the same.
With every woman comes great expectations…I am a WOMAN!
