International women’s day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This day is celebrated each year on the 8th of March aiming to accelerate women’s equality. Each year it has a different theme; 2022 is #BreakTheBias which is aimed at calling out gender bias and inequality and working towards a world free of stereotypes and discrimination.
It’s amazing how far women have come over the decades. There was a point in time where women were not allowed to vote, open a bank account, or work many different jobs, such as working on the frontline or any job that was classed as too physical and dangerous. Women have fought extremely hard over the years to be able to do many of the things that were once illegal and to make the world a more equal place.
There is still a long way to go for women, as many are still facing inequalities such as a difference of pay in the workplace. Therefore, it is so important for us to celebrate international women’s day, and to continue fighting for an equal world.
Bath and Bubbles is a small business run by women. Growing up I always viewed large companies as being run by men, and that business was a man’s world, never believing it was something I could do. There were so many stereotypes of what jobs women should be doing and many times being told things that we couldn’t do. At Bath and Bubbles, we are proud to have broken these stereotypes, by running a business that we are passionate about.
To show your appreciation to all the amazing women in your life, why not send them a gift. Send them a bath box filled with products that they can relax with. Or even treat yourself because you deserve it!
