This Friday, on March 8, 2019, BellaNaija is joining the rest of the world to celebrate International Women’s Day. This year, the theme is Balance For Better.
There are a few ways to push for a more gender-balanced world. One of them is by celebrating women, acknowledging the impacts they’ve had on our lives.
That is why on this International Women’s Day, we want to share the stories of women who have impacted our lives and we invite you to share your stories with us, as well. We encourage you to share stories of women who have made you stronger, women without whom you wouldn’t be where or who you are today.
Our wonder women.
It could be your mother, a teacher from secondary school, a distant relative, a family friend. It could be your nanny, your hairdresser, or your boss at work. It could be the childhood doctor who inspired you to study medicine, a writer whose book inspired to you live freer, a newscaster who opened your eyes to the world of media. It could be any woman.
Send a short story about your wonder woman to features(at)bellanaija(dot)com with the subject My Wonder Woman, and let’s share your story on the International Women’s Day.
