“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” – Diane Mariechild
At Sing See Soon, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day!
Why is International Women’s Day (March 8) important?
It’s a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.
You can learn more about how to show your support for IWD here.
“Every day is enough to be fabulous. Every woman on a regular day is worth celebrating.” – Grace Lin
For our Sales & Marketing head, Grace Lin, one of the women leaders she admires most is Cynthia Chua, founder and CEO of Spa Esprit Group. She admires her drive, passion and vision – and her how she is no stranger to getting her hands dirty, and readily chips in with front-line staff if times get tough. She’s a dynamic woman for sure! Read more about Cynthia here.
Do you also have a female mentor you admire, someone who has guided you, led you and taught you in any way? She could also be a friend, a sister, a mother or your partner. It’s a great opportunity to think of all the ways they have enriched your life, and take this chance to say ‘I appreciate you’.
We are all about celebrating all the joy and love that life can bring – don’t miss out on a day to show the important women in your life how much you appreciate them. If you are a woman reading this: You are appreciated. Celebrate yourself!
