Happy International Women’s Month!
Empowered women empower women. The best girls support girls! We celebrate this day and we salute and support all women - whether they were born with a vagina or not.
We really hope there will come a time when we won’t need women’s month, because everything’s equal and privilege is no longer present since everyone enjoys the same things. But for now, women’s month is there to give us strength and give voice and support to all women.
Remember to hug your favorite girl. Tell her she’s beautiful. Tell her she’s great and deserves all the best things. Boost her self-esteem and self-confidence.
You might say that everyday is women’s day, but how often do girls and women get greetings and affirmations? So go all out in your love fest! Hopefully, yes, you should do this everyday!
Stand up and shut down all the negativity we face, from unrealistic beauty standards to career ceilings. Never hesitate to shut down negativity. You don’t have to be negative yourself with invective language (although go be your awesome self, funny and witty while being irreverent!) but do be direct and honest.
Speak up for the girls who might still be developing their own courage to speak up next time. You might not know it, but someone somewhere might badly need you to rise up and speak up. We’re all connected online now, and you might think your comment is a small thing, but it could be a defining moment for someone.
Support your female colleagues and women-run businesses. Gender parity is still a long way away, and pay equality is still a little ways off, too. But we’re getting there! And so many womentrepreneurs are leading by example. It’s wonderful to see!
We may not have a lot of women at the top in many industries, but we’re certainly on the way there!
With this in mind, here are our suggestions on empowering gifts - to yourself and others.
Look into donating phones, tablets and laptops for girls homeschooling.
This is now our high tech version of keeping girls in school. With many kids still at home or choosing to stay home, you can help those in need of gadgets to get connected to their school and teachers.
Have your own students at home? Make sure they’re equipped with holders and stands to help with their Zoom classes.
Donate to women’s shelters.
Statistics worldwide have saddening numbers on women in poverty and in abusive situations. Women’s shelters provide the help these women need to get back on their feet.
Support women-run businesses.
Buy from them and then share your testimonials of their products on social media. Have friends who have a business? Gift them with indestructible phone cases to protect their phone since many of them do their business via smartphone!
Give the gift of time and appreciation.
Spend time with the best women in your life. Tell them how much they mean to you, give them much-needed compliments, and show your love with little but meaningful gifts that will make them smile, like these marble design AirPods case for music buffs, and this adjustable, anti-slip iPad stand for a new mom who can’t always have hands for her iPad, but will definitely need it in her bedroom or kitchen counter!
Give them gift certificates from women-founded brands.
It’s a win-win-win. You support women-run businesses and you let your friend buy what they want. Let’s admit it, women are so hard to shop for, even when you know them so well.
So just let them pick their own gifts. It’s like a mini, fun version of women’s choice!
Empower them with a pretty, leather phone case
Leather represents sophistication and success. It reminds us girls to break through glass ceilings, to never sell ourselves short, and to go after our dreams.
A leather case is something you or your recipient can swap into when going to the office or having an important client meeting.
But you know what, embrace your femininity. Embrace your love for pretty and cute things. We don’t have to use masculine things to be empowered.
Go ahead and dress up your phone in the cutest cases and conquer the world with a smile on your face.
Don’t forget to be kind to yourself, too.
Know your worth. You’re absolutely wonderful and you deserve to be loved, to be admired, to reach your highest potential.
Have a nice bath, and realign your goals with a mindset that you can achieve. It’s just a matter of hard work and grit, as it is for anyone else. Nothing can stop you. All the world really is your oyster.
Happy international women’s day!
