Tuesday, March 20th is the first day of spring, which is exciting for this Canadian gal. I’m happy for the warmer weather to come, the flowers to blossom and the many walks to come on local trails. The Vernal Equinox occurs on the 20th in 2018, which is why this date makes the first day of spring. Now the days will get longer, making for more daylight and shorter nights, until June 21 (summer solstice) when the opposite will happen.
Along with the warm and sun of spring days gives me a reason to smile, here are some great events to celebrate women during the spring season:
March 8th is International Women’s Day, an occasion that has been in existence for over 100 years. It’s a day of rallies, marches, exhibits, speeches, business events, and more. It’s a day to celebrate women’s achievements in every facet of life and to strive for where we have yet to get to. This year’s campaign (2018) is #PressforProgress. It’s a hashtag that’s been lighting up Twitter and blogs but what exactly does it mean?
Who do you look up to? What aspirations do you have? If you have goals, you may face a challenging road ahead, but nothing should hold you back. In the past, women have struggled to get to the top, but times are changing, and the leading lights in this infographic show us that anything is possible. If you need motivation or a push in the right direction, taking inspiration from women who have hit their targets is a wonderful place to start.
