Throughout the month of March, we were celebrating women. International Women’s Day (IWD) falls on the 8th of March of every year, thus the whole month of March is ‘Women’s Month’. To celebrate this special month, we gave some of our followers an opportunity to share special messages with other women.
- “Empowerment is not about elevation or success. Empowerment is about choice. The freedom of refusing or accepting what has been offered to you.” – Ruvimbo 33, Harare.
2. “I define a woman as a sacred jewel. Delicate and lovely as a flower yet so powerful and determined to pursue what she believes in.” – Rumbidzai Mugadza, Harare.
3. “International Women’s Day is a day to remember the people who carry and nature generations. Celebrating the mothers, sisters, wives, ladies, daughters, aunts and girls who carry the hustle that comes with being a “woman”. Respect for all the women out there.” – Kudai Chimusoro, Chiredzi
4. “A busy vibrant goal oriented woman is more attractive than the one who waits for a manto validate her existence”. – (borrowed) Primrose Nyakunikwa, Harare
5. “Wathitha umfazi wathinta imbokodo” (“You strike a woman, you strike a stone.”) – Lily, Bulawayo
- “I am proud to be a woman and I am thankful to God.” – Cynthia, Harare
- “Women’s Day gives us time to reflect on how women are supernatural beings, admiring their courage and strength and making a lot of noise about how far we’ve come. I love being a woman because I could never imagine being something else.” – Clarissa Regede, Harare
- “The woman I was, the woman I am, the woman I wish was, the woman I want to be. The woman I shall be. I celebrate all these on Women’s Day.’ – Tinashe Madamombe, Harare.
- “I want to be able to go into a business meeting and be seen for what I bring to the table as a serious business person and not as a woman. Women’s Day reminds me that we are not yet there but we have done so much to be where we are now.” – Sharon Madangwe, Karoi
10. “I don’t know much about Women’s Day but I think every woman no matter where she is, should be reminded of how valuable she is. Every woman deserves to be acknowledged for her contribution in society.” – Thandiwe Danga, Norton
