We’re supporting International Women’s Day

At Affinity Business Centre, we’re all for supporting each other, creating a collaborative community that allows everyone to achieve their potential, regardless of who they are. As a business led by women, we love supporting any cause that helps to raise awareness of, and address gender inequalities, in order to create a fairer environment for all.

International Women’s Day is a day of celebration and appreciation for the achievements of women around the world. It’s an annual reminder to recognize, honour, and support the rights and accomplishments of all women everywhere. The theme for this year is #EmbraceEquity

It is important to support International Women’s Day because it is an opportunity to recognize the value and contributions of all women around the world, who often face unequal opportunities and discrimination. It is a day to amplify their voices and celebrate their achievements while also identifying areas of progress still needed.

The gender inequality that women face has consequences on society, not just economically but also in terms of health and education. In many countries, women face restricted access to basic services such as healthcare, sanitation, and education in comparison to men. This can lead to a decrease in quality of life for both women and their families. Therefore, it is important for us to stand together for gender equality so that every woman can enjoy equal rights and opportunities no matter where she lives.

International Women’s Day is also an opportunity to show solidarity with the fight for women’s rights globally. By supporting International Women’s Day we are advocating for policies that reduce gender disparities between men and women globally; promoting respect for fundamental human rights; ensuring access to health care; providing economic security; eliminating violence against women; challenging discrimination; encouraging participation in decision-making at home, work, school or at the community level; recognising the many female (and male) leaders who are making a difference worldwide; as well as highlighting inspiring female role models from all walks of life who have broken barriers in order to make progress possible.

We should use this day as a reminder that more needs to be done in order to achieve true equality on a global scale, but also that only by working together we can create a truly equitable society.
