Celebrating… Women!

March 5, 2011

Following our FACEBOOK PAGE? Then you would have seen our updates about the INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s DAY.

Yea, we’re talking about the annual event that happens every 8th of March whereby thousands of activities are held throughout the world to inspire women and to celebrate women’s achievements.

The younger generation of today may think nothing of this annual event, since they already have access to education, to opportunities and well, to most things that are available to men.

But did you know that it really wasn’t all that long ago that women didn’t have such equal opportunities? Many had no chance to go to school and many were not even allowed to work in certain industries or hold certain jobs. In fact, back in the older days, it was even ‘preferred’ that women were just seen, and not heard. Women were not encouraged to have their own minds, let alone doing their own thing… or (GASP!) running their own business. Yea, there was actually a time when women weren’t even allowed to wear pants…!

Although most of us who live in the more modern societies such as Malaysia have the chance to be literate and educated, there are still pockets in the world where women are not given such ‘luxury’ of equal education and employment opportunities, etc. And even in our kind of so-called modern societies, the glass ceiling still exists. It’s not uncommon to witness a woman receiving significantly less renumeration for the same work done by a man.

But but but… that said, things have really improved on the global level, and you can click HERE to read more. Of course, that article is mostly relevant the western hemisphere; so what about over here in Asia?

Well, there have been significant and notable progress as evidenced by the number of women holding senior positions in companies. However, there is also some findings that seem to indicate that some industries have made faster progress than others. If you’re interested to read more about the situation back here at home, HERE’s a rather interesting piece that examined the state amongst women accountants in Malaysia.

Now don’t get us wrong, we ain’t egging you on to go all feministic on us… We just want you to be aware of the facts of the matter; be appreciative of what the earlier women had done for us to achieve the current state of (more) equal treatment for women, and be proactive in trying to help other women to attain a better quality of life.

Back to the International Women’s Day (IWD)

On this very special day, a global web of rich and diverse activities connect women from all around the world. These activities can range from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more.

More and more non-profit organizations have sprung up and more corporations have also started to more actively support IWD by running their own internal events and through supporting external ones. For example, even Google, the search engine and media giant started the practice of changing its logo to include IWD on its global search pages every 8th March.

Here’s an example of Google celebrating IWD in 2009!

It is certainly very gratifying to see how IWD has gained increasingly attention, recognition and status with the passage of each year. In fact, the United States even designates the whole month of March as ‘Women’s History Month’.


The message from the INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s DAY OFFICIAL SITE is this:

So make a difference, think globally and act locally !! Make everyday International Women’s Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.
