“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” — Madeleine Albright
It was just a few weeks ago, when the offline and online world was erupting with celebrations for “International Women’s Day” on March 8th. Every year, on this day there are celebrations for this day to celebrate Women from all walks of life. There are brands giving discounts, restaurants offering free drinks, partners buying gifts for the women in their lives, marathons being run by and for Women, and so on. All these commercial activities are meant to support the underlying agenda of Women Empowerment; but what does empowerment really mean? It certainly does not mean to celebrate Women on just 1 day out of the entire year, now does it?…and definitely not defined by the discounts offered.
