Women are excited for more reasons than just one! We kick off this month by celebrating WOMEN. This is our month, and although we should not wait until just March to celebrate, nonetheless, here we are with March marking the national observance of Women’s History Month. If that is not exciting enough, March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day that not only highlights and celebrates powerful women and their achievements, but also seeks to bring awareness to the issues that still exist for women around the globe.
Women from all walks of life are continuously creating history by recognizing their potential and becoming more empowered everyday. Women’s equality has also come an incredibly long way, making tremendous strides of progress throughout the years. Figuratively speaking, women have gone from just looking through to breaking the “glass ceiling” that separated them from the unique challenges they faced compared to men in the workplace. And now, in the most recent years, we hear of more and more women making strides professionally and “shattering the glass ceiling.”
Women are no longer seeking the proverbial corporate key, but are launching their own businesses and carving out their own pathways to success by creating atmospheres for themselves that allow them to be more flexible in supporting the needs of their personal and professional lives. Gone are the days of women walking into the unforeseen glass barrier that has awaited us for so many years, we are now seeing the glass pieces shatter as we walk through to empower ourselves and balance the playing field. We know that there is still much work to be done, however the advancements that women have made in recent history cannot be ignored.
This Women’s History Month, take time to celebrate all that women has accomplished. Here are a few snapshots of women who have made strides in 2014, check out Women Shattering Glass Ceiling, Reaching New Heights in 2014. Help continue the movement by recognizing some of the wonderful women in your lives that not only influence and motivate you but others as well to be empowered every day. By the way, make sure you stop by and post a comment recognizing your Powerful Woman. We would love to hear from you!
