Carry on with the momentum this year by adding feminist pieces like suspenders and bowties to your wardrobe.

Should you still celebrate International Women’s Day?

Of course, yes! It is one of the few days women all around the world can come together and raise their voice against gender inequality. In the vocal fight for equality, women force the world to watch as they thrash the boring stereotypes of how a woman should be all girly and pinky or be sexy nurses and not doctors. Those are all medieval and stupid mindsets. Women should have the freedom to choose what they want to be or do.

Unfortunately, there’s still much work to be done, the battle for gender equality is still far from being won. And the aim of International Women’s Day has always been to achieve complete gender equality. If all the women-led movements are anything to write home about, it’s that when women join hands to give voice to their predicament, change occurs—no matter how minute.

Women are able to work for shorter hours, vote and receive better pay today all because 15,000 women marched together in 1908 and demanded for it. This just shows how powerful women can be when they come together in unity.

Break the monotonous cycle
