This is our time. This is the time for all of us to stand up and be heard, to feel empowered, to love and be loved, to look forward to a better day, to create a better future for all women. This is the time for us to stand up and take a bow for the hard work we’ve put in, for the tears we’ve shed, and for the miles we have walked. This is the time for us to take a moment for ourselves, to breathe deeply and close our eyes, to square our shoulders and move up and out into the light. This is the time for us to be heard, to be respected, and to rise up into a place of equality. This is our time.
Happy International Women’s Day. Stand up, and stand proudly.
