8 March 19: International Women’s Day

On International Women’s Day, I find myself reflecting on my favourite phrases.

As well as this one on my favourite cushion (‘She believed she could so she did’), one of my top ones is ‘None of us gets out of this alive’. There’s so much to reflect on. It’s about community and sharing, it’s about helping people out, lending your skills and knowledge and giving your love and support to whoever needs it, whatever their station in life, because, quite frankly, it’s not like we live forever if we happen to be richer, prettier or more successful than anyone else.

This year’s IWD theme is #BalanceforBetter and how we can raise awareness against bias and work towards a more balanced world. We all have a part to play in this, from the least to the most heard voices, wherever we happen to be in life.
