Weekly Writing Prompt #7

Last week was International Women's Day. The day itself is a celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and a call-to-action to progress gender parity.

We are witnessing a significant change and attitudinal shift in society's thoughts about women's equality right now. Unfortunately, women are still not paid equally to that of their male colleagues, we are still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men. However, things are changing. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, women can work and have a family, and we do have real choices. So each year, the world inspires women and celebrates their achievements through International Women's Day, March 8.

Use this weeks prompt to write about a great female role model in your life? Why is she so important to you? Or, write about yourself and how fierce you are!
