We Celebrate International Women’s Day Today and Everyday


Women rock. There’s just no other way to say it. We get sh*t done. We’re vulnerable human beings that endure crap from everyone around us and even from ourselves, and yet we rise in the most beautiful of ways. Right now, today, in honor of International Women’s Day — launched by the United Nations to recognize women’s achievements throughout the world — women are fighting for their rights.

In Spain women throughout the country are on strike in order to bring awareness to “a society free of sexist oppression, exploitation and violence.” Does it really matter if women strike? Hell yeah. Because of their 24-hour strike from work 300 trains in the area have been disrupted. But more importantly, their message is getting through to our ears and politicians and people who can bring about change.

According to International Business Times, women in India are protesting domestic violence and sexual assault. In Rome, women marched in solidarity with the #MeToo movement. In Manila, women there are remembering the countless of women who have died through “extrajudicial killings” under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte, The New York Times reports.

Here, in the U.S., we will continue to strive to reach our goals, unite with our sisters and support them through their journey. The incredible thing about this day is that despite if “Women’s Day” falls on March 8 or Jan. 21, or any other day, we will take to the streets and demand attention whenever we please. We won’t wait for the one day to celebrate each other and fight for each other, we do it everyday.

As the Times Up movement and the Women’s March movement has shown us is that together we are strong. Together we can create change. Together anything is possible, and those that don’t want to join in the celebration of our womenhood will be left in the dust. To those people we say, boy, bye.
