Happy Woman's Day
The 9th August marks Woman's Day in South Africa. It now seems August has been labelled The month to celebrate Women and we couldn't be happier.
We love how big brands and magazines have taken on the celebrating. We are so impressed with the campaign #WordsOfWomen ELLE South Africa launched a few weeks ago. If you are not aware, here it is in short: ELLE have asked women around the country to send a 1 minute whatsapp voice note telling them what makes them feel vulnerable and what makes them feel strong, so that as women, we might find encouragement in each other's stories and voices. The WhatsApp line is open indefinitely and they keep posting these 1 minute inspirations on their social media platforms. The punch line: 'Let our voices be the music that uplifts our sisters'
We are Woman proud and we feel honoured that us, Women, are celebrated & have a day dedicated to our existence.
We want to be part of a movement, like The ELLE campaign, that empowers Women across the world. For us to stand together and not apart. To compliment and not judge. To create love and not war. To encourage and not belittle. To be proud and not jealous. To be confident and not self conscious... To spread love and kindness. To love our bodies and accept who we are, today. To celebrate our uniqueness. We want to be role models and givers of light & inspiration, but not be put on a pedestal. Instead we want to encourage you all to do what you love, to love yourselves, appreciate beauty in every form, to be real & honest. To be YOU. No façades, no masks. YOU and be proud of yourself.
Happy Woman's day to all you unique and dynamic ladies
"Here's to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them."
