International Women's Day

I will never forget International Women's Day 2018. Today has been so exciting and I can't wait for the future.

 Project Babe is a community by women, for women. Today's official launch is just the beginning. There are so many great things in store!

In honor of International Women's Day, I wanted to share this beautiful poem...

IDOLS

You put her on a pedestal. Love her, adore her, crown her as

your queen. then you watch and wait, for a slip, a split

second when her guard is down. You would tear her into

pieces just to claim a fragment of her story.

 

No one can be perfect all the time. Why do you expect her to

be any different? Why is she held to an impossible standard?

Why do you take it so personally when she contradicts the

version of herself, that exists only in your head?

 

You think you know her, that she owes you somehow. That

her existence is only relative to yours. But she is her own

person. She lives and breathes, she hopes and dreams. She

has a life, a love, a family, a purpose. And she doesn't owe

anyone a damn thing.

Today was sooooo powerful. I saw so many different events going on (just in Miami) to celebrate, but more importantly, I noticed women everywhere empowering each other. 

EMPOWERED WOMEN, EMPOWER WOMEN

Then, the most compelling ad ran across my screen this afternoon as I sat on the couch watching Hulu. Google created a page dedicated to International Women's Day- where, not only are the facts and statistics astounding, but their video is really empowering. 

Check it out!

"Google Search Trends data shows that the world is searching for gender equality more than ever before. On #IWD2018, let's celebrate the moments, stories, and people who are advocating for a more equal world. Explore top searched trends around women this year at on Google Trends."

Their whole trend page for International Women's Day is worth checking out, here.

In the meantime, I wanted to share some of the most interesting statistics.
