IWD 2021#ChooseToChallenge

International Women’s Day 2021 is a day to celebrate all women’s achievements. This year the campaign theme is ge. To challenge gender bias, inequality and call out aspects that are particularly unhelpful to women. Sadly in today’s society there are still significant taboos in the workplace around certain women’s health issues. Natural monthly cycles can vary significantly amongst women and conditions such as endometriosis cause severe, chronic pain or difficulty in trying to conceive and women need far more understanding in the workplace to manage conditions like this. Navigating the way through hormone transitions such as the menopause can also have a detrimental or significant impact on a number of women. Teenage girls embarking on their chosen academic and career paths need greater understanding and awareness of what is normal to expect and when they should be seeking help to enable them to achieve their full potential. Opening this conversation amongst all cultures, religions and communities will help deliver much needed change and in turn be a key step to insuring better equality. Let’s choose to challenge!
