something for a friday #6 a day for women

Today is international women's day; a day to celebrate the women of the world who make it the place it is. If I am totally honest with you, it wasn't until I moved to Cyprus that I really appreciated international women's day. I mean in London I am sure there was stuff centered around this day, but I never really took notice.  

And now for the history bit. 

In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and Valentine's Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

Women come in all shapes and sizes. We are resilient, ambitious, motivated, organized, passionate, creative, stylish, loving, responsible, dynamic and emotional. All of the above make us special. Make us who we are.

And what better way to celebrate International Women's Day than championing my favourite women's style of late. Im going through a simple, structured, sport luxe, casual kind of mood and I am loving this seriously stylish ladies.
