Well, yesterday was International Woman’s Day. We have so many important woman in our world, that without them, who know what would happen. International Woman’s Day was on the 8th of March. Where we celebrate ladies of the world. There are so many amazing woman out there to celebrate. Some of the amazing woman that come to my mind first, would be…
Julia Gillard: She is currently Australia first Prime Minister. Although there is a lot of conflict between whether she is doing a good job or not, it is still an incredible achievement.
Jessica Watson: Jessica Watson was the youngest kid to sail around the world. At the age of 17 she took off and started her journey. She did it all by herself and that is amazing!
J.K. Rowling: J.K. Rowling is the amazing author of Harry Potter, much loved books! J.K. Rowling is an amazingly talented writer and is a great role model.
But there is another side to this story. There are also a lot of woman living in poverty. Millions of women and girls walk over six kilometres a day in search of food, water and firewood. This leaves little time for school, accessing health services and earning an income.
I’m walking 10,000 steps per day from Monday 12 March to Sunday 18 March 2012 as part of CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes challenge. I do have a web page and I may be able to put up a link soon!
Have a great day
