March 8 is International Women’s Day – the one day of the year to celebrate us for just being us! It’s the week of International Women’s Day and the ribbons reflect the purple, white and green worn by the suffragettes a hundred years ago as they fought – and died – for the right to vote. Ever since, they’ve been associated with international campaigns to end violence against women.
We’ve come a long way, even if we are yet to achieve gender equality. But how does the rest of the world’s women and girls fare? How can you support women to be their best, to follow their dreams, to be free from violence and thrive at home, work and school – here and overseas?
HERE ARE THE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY:
1. Tell the first woman you meet in the morning how wonderful she is and give her a big smile. We all need a bit of positive reinforcement to be our best!
2. Wear a purple ribbon. Purple has been associated with women power ever since the suffragette movement. Show the world that you believe in the power of women by wearing a purple ribbon this week!
3. Be kind to yourself and to others. Take a moment to reflect on acts of kindness you’ve experienced or offered up to others. Celebrate them.
4. Get informed. Take time to learn about women and girls in other parts of the world. What are their lives like? What can you do about inequality, poverty and injustice? It is International Women’s Day after all. Check out this video as a start.
5. Give your time to a cause you care about that promotes women and girls. You’ve heard it before, but you can be the change you want to see in the world. Maybe you want to volunteer locally. Or you can fundraise for an organisation supporting women and girls overseas. Read up on a few great ideas and host your own morning tea, movie night, fun run or special event!
6. If you’re short on time, you can always donate to a cause you care about. Your investment supports UN Women projects helping women and girls go to school, get a job or escape from violence.
7. Follow UN Women on Twitter and spread the word about gender equality to your family and friends.

These are some gems because of their sheer presence and charisma and whether or not these people use their talent for good things has always been a nature vs nurture debate.

Now of course, such a list is always subjective. We take into consideration here, only the fact that these few were great leaders and not whether for good or bad.
