INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY, WOMAN OF THE YEAR FINALIST...HERE'S TO ALL THE WOMEN IN BUSINESS!
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
On this day, 8 March 2019, IWD, I am proud to sit here today to be recognized as a finalist in the Woman of the Year category at the Women in Credit Awards 2019, being a founder and director of a successful boutique Insolvency firm, alongside the other remarkable female finalists that include doctors and professors, as well as other professionals. It's not just the celebrities, politicians and activists that impact on the world for future generations, but those that successfully go about their day to day lives. Here's to all the women in business today!
