Ode to Women Today: International Women’s Day and A Day Without A Woman

March 8, 2017

Inspiration for women entrepreneurs, females and small business owners

The opening of the One Woman. One World event in Saratoga Springs 3 years ago started with a moving song produced by the UN Women. The song was launched on International Women’s Day, March 8th, 2013 and displays the singing talents of women from China to Costa Rica, from Mali to Malaysia who came together to spread a message of unity and solidarity. The song is a rallying cry that inspires listeners to join the drive for women’s rights and gender equality.

As their website states, ‘One Woman’ was written for UN Women, the global champions for women and girls worldwide, to celebrate its mission and work to improve women’s lives around the world. It reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination against women and look toward a brighter future: We Shall Shine!

The women at the event were reminded that all over the world ordinary women are doing extraordinary things to improve the world for women and girls. Women are taking action in their own personal ways, missions and styles to positively make a difference.

Lisa Woodruff, author, mother and CBS This Morning contributor who created a foundation to help wounded veterans, shared four truths about women she sees in women all over the world.

1.Women are built to survive because they have a steel rod within them that makes them strong.
2.Women have faith which is important in tackling any hardship. Faith is like a trampoline that won’t let us go too low when we come down.
3.Women have friends surrounding and bolstering them up whenever they need them.
4.Women have humor to take the sharp edges off any circumstance and lighten up any situation.

Today’s Wednesday Wisdom is to help you realize if you are reading this today that you are part of a world of women who live every day to make a unique contribution. Remember we have sisters around the world who need us to continue to fight for equal rights. We are “One Woman. One World.” Rejoice and learn more about International Women’s Day, watch the video and song and be proud to be female.
