Saluting International Women’s Day

 

Saluting International Women’s Day today. 

This tribute to International Women’s Day was originally posted here for the March 2013 Event.  It is such a fitting tribute to women and the day, that it bears repeating annually.

Wear Red today in honor of Internation Women’s Day. Join people around the worldwho are wearing the color red to show support and raise awareness for the women’s rights movement. Share on social media with the hashtag #InternationalWomensDay or #BeBoldForChange

 

I treat every day as International Women’s Day.  As a working mom of two teenagers — a daughter in college and a son who is college-bound in 2014 – each day involves a great bit of mothering, promoting causes and issues I represent and/or believe in, as well as running a woman-owned business — all to help move the dial towards the betterment of this world.  We call this multi-tasking. I call this life.

The environment, women’s issues, health, education, bullying, gun violence, motherhood and entertainment are a few of my many undertakings to further awareness and affect change that will lead to a brighter future for all — especially my children  Each March, thousands of events are held around the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements.

So, make a difference, think globally and act locally!! Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.

Update for 2017. I did it! My daughter is now a college graduate and resides in New York City working for a sports organization; my son is currently a junior in college.  Yes, I can say I am a proud mother!
