5 Meaningful Ways You Can Celebrate Women’s Achievements
March 7, 2022
International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world every year during the month of March. The day celebrates the cultural, political, and socio-economic achievements of women and girls. This is a great opportunity to take time and reflect, celebrate your achievements and those around you. Here is a list of things you can do by yourself or with a group of friends.
Have a movie night at home – What’s more enjoyable than watching a movie with some delicious snacks and being entertained. Choose a movie in which the lead roles are women or ones that have been written, directed or produced by women.
Go shopping – Shopping by yourself or with friends is always a great treat. Support local women’s businesses in your area, and shop in store or online. Whether you’re looking for fashion, beauty or home goods, celebrate women-owned brands.
Pamper yourself – Whether you like going to the spa, doing an at-home facial, taking a warm bath with candles and soft music, set some time aside to take care of yourself. Try adding some facial tools to your beauty routine and get the most out of the skincare products you use.
Get together with a bunch of friends – Make a date to meet up with some friends whether it is in person or over facetime or zoom call. It’s a great way to catch up with some old friends or spend some time with new ones. Grab your favourite drink, food and relax.
Learn about women’s rights and donate to a local not-for-profit charity – There are many organizations around the world trying to make a difference for women and girls by fighting for rights, education, gender equality and many other important causes. Consider donating to an important cause that you align with or simply just learn about one of these important causes and what you can do to help.
