It's time to flip the script on International Women's Day
What if, instead of asking women to work harder on this day,
we took time for ourselves?
International Women's Day is the one day each year where companies and organizations reach out proactively to showcase women's stories. For many companies, it's a performative act for a day or a week and then we revert back to the apathetic reality that women's stories and truth-telling about the state of gender equity are saved for "special" days like this.
It's been a BRUTAL two years for women. UN Women Deputy Executive Director Anita Bhatia estimates the pandemic has set advances in gender equity back 25 years.
After the ravages of COVID and 111 IWDs, to date, this year we're flipping the script on International Women's Day - and celebrating #IWD4ME.
We are welcoming in a revolution of rest with the understanding that true community care begins with self care. Whether you can find a full day of rest or only have 15 minutes, we invite you to join us on your own terms.
Healing our systems begins with healing ourselves.
Be part of a community that's changing the narrative, and transforming systems for good.
LET'S FLIP THE SCRIPT
AS SEEN IN THE TORONTO STAR...
"These singular days of celebration are a reminder of how much we need to do to transform our systems and stop creating micro-validations as distractions from the deeper work. We need to remedy the harm of decades of institutional bias and trauma. We need to heal ourselves and our systems."
- Vicki Saunders
