International Women's Day #BeBoldForChange

International Women's Day - #BeBoldForChange
7 March 2017

Written by - Emily Bendell
 
For some of us lucky enough to live in societies and cities dedicated to striving for equality, gender bias can at times be an almost invisible struggle. Powerful confident women are in our place of work, amongst our friends and in our professional networks. Much progress seems to have been made.
And yet… the gender pay gap in the UK remains at 7% for women without children and leaps to a staggering 21% for those with children and recent figures suggest 1 in 5 women in will at some point in their lives experience sexual assault. The Everyday Sexism Project has highlighted the casual sexism that infiltrates most areas of our society and we have been dismayed to witness the sexist rhetoric displayed recently at the highest level of global politics. And for many women around the world the most basic human rights are still denied based on gender alone.
International Women's Day means different things to different people, but the global focus is on equality and a celebration of women and all their achievements.
Throughout ancient and modern history, women have collaborated and lead purposeful action to redress inequality in the hope of a better future for their communities, children and themselves. Whether through bold well-documented action or through humble resistance that never made it into the history books, women have and continue to unite for equality.


Along the way, as part of this almighty struggle one particularly powerful and effective movement brought lasting and significant change. The Suffragette movement began in the early 1900s and forged a globally united community that worked together in hope and action for equality. It was the Suffragettes who started International Women's Day, with the first officially named "lnternational Women's Day" event held in 1911.
To this day, International Women's Day continues to be a powerful platform globally that unifies tenacity and drives action for gender parity, while celebrating the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women.
 
Here we find out how some of our favourite women feel about being a woman in 2017 and what they have pledged for International Women’s Day.


Tigerlily Taylor is Daughter of the Queen drummer Roger Taylor and supermodel Deborah Leng, Tigerlily is already a society favourite, having graced the cover of Tatler and appearing regularly in Vogue.
 
Who is your inspirational woman?
My mother. She raised my siblings and I as a single mother and is, and has always been the strongest, most unique and independent woman I know.
 
How do you feel about being a woman in 2017?
Fantastic. The women I surround myself with are smart, strong individuals who are not afraid to voice their opinions; I feel blessed to have the privilege of their company. Due to certain changes recently made in Western society which have unfortunately provided ignorant, prejudiced people with a platform, we must be particularly cautious of the perpetuation of hate and alienation. However, having observed the protests happening around the world I have felt an immense sense of pride and love towards the human race as the extraordinary power of solidarity continues to be exhibited by brave, compassionate individuals.
Due to certain recent changes, we must be particularly cautious of the perpetuation of hate and alienation. Hold your own sisters! Together we are an irrepressible force.
