Introduction

The 8th of March is known as International Women’s Day. Let us watch what this teenage girl wants to share with us.

International Women’s Day 2020: We are #GenerationEquality

Reflective Thought

The theme for this year's Women's International Day is #choose to challenge. It is true that we see great women who work hard to aspire their dream of creating a better and just world for them and for future generations but seeing them only is not enough. Together we need to raise awareness and challenge things which are not right and are disrespecting women and their dignity. We need to challenge behaviours which are accepted as being ok when they are not ok. We need to challenge inequality and injustice against women. We need to support women who love and care for future generations. We need to support women who are bearers of life. In all that we do and say we are to fight for the right to girls to be educated, for their right to express themselves in writing or artistically. We need to challenge the idea that women are like objects and that some fit in while others not. Girls and women have the right to be respected regardless of their race, physic, intellectual and artistic ability, and status.

Prayer

Dear God, we ask for your wisdom to challenge every disrespectful behaviour towards all women especially towards those who are close to us and courage to seek help. Amen
