Choose to Challenge Your Views: International Women’s Day

 

8th March 2021 Imogen Mills Uncategorised

Today is International Women’s Day. As stated on the official website, the theme this year is ‘Choose to Challenge’, which seems very fitting after the challenging year the world has faced. The website also mentions how from challenge comes change, which is why we’re writing this blog post. By sharing our own views on the subject, we are hoping to challenge other people’s thought processes and spark change on an individual level. We know we are just a small fish in a much larger conversational pond but if we can challenge just one person’s view and encourage change, then we’ve made a difference. We also hope this inspires you to do the same.

In this article, we take a look at how women’s rights and opportunities have developed over the past hundred years or so, our current position and what we can do to continue to challenge remaining inequalities going forward.

The Development of Women’s Rights and Opportunities

When we consider just how far women’s rights have come in the past one hundred years, it is possible to see a massive shift towards equality. Seeing more women in powerful and influential positions also highlights this gradual change. Below are just a handful of examples of the developments in society that have started to shift the gender bias:

Continuing to Challenge

There are so many advances that have been made to get us to the point we are at today but we still have a long way to go. There are a number of issues women still face on a daily basis, including but by no means limited to:

So, what more can we do? Stay informed, stay educated and continue to challenge the inequalities you face or notice in your daily life. Not doing anything is a choice too.
