IWD 2023 #embraceequity

Jumping on the IWD bandwagon, here’s to all the women I know, have known and will know in future. Women in my family, both immediate and extended, those I have worked with and for, friends, schoolmates, course mates, and many, many more. Happy international women’s day!! ā¤ļøšŸ™.

Proverbs 31:30 NIV
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Hope you enjoy this: I wrote it a couple of years ago:

A baby girl
Becomes a little girl
Grows into a young woman

Before she becomes
Your girlfriend or wife
Mother or grandmother

She's someone's daughter
Sister or cousin
Someone's aunty

She's my daughter
She's my grand-daughter
She's my daughter-in-law

Before she becomes anything else
She's family
Equity starts at home!

It's on us therefore
To raise generations of women and men too
Who will not tolerate injustice of any form

And a future where women thrive
Independent and strong
Equally beside men
