This is not your strange weekend.
On Sunday, Oct. 11 the world celebrated Worldwide Day of the Woman. The United Nations’ annual vacation focuses on the challenges ladies face day-after-day and urges individuals to uplift and empower them.
Every year, the group chooses a theme and the 2020 one could not be extra spot-on. “Progress for adolescent ladies has not saved tempo with the realities they face in the present day, and COVID-19 has bolstered many of those gaps,” a press release reads on the United Nations’ website. “This yr, underneath the theme, ‘My Voice, Our Equal Future,’ let’s seize the chance to be impressed by what adolescent ladies see because the change they need, the solutions- massive and small- they’re main and demanding throughout the globe.”
Serving to to unfold this highly effective message? Michelle Obama, Jessica Biel, Charlize Theron, David Beckham and lots of extra stars used their platform to encourage and encourage these to combat for equality.
