International Women’s Day is an annual global event with lofty aim to forge gender equality and above all, to celebrate women’s achievements. Where men can achieve, many women can also achieve and for some extraordinary ones, even more. To realise the goal, women all over the world must be accorded equal opportunities in order to excel in whatever fields they do. To name some, we count the late British’s Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, former Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and present New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern as some exceptional world leaders representing the fairer gender.
“You don’t have to play masculine to be a strong women” – Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Befittingly, the chosen theme for year 2022 is #BreakTheBias where it is a gender equal world; a world free of bias, stereotypes & discrimination; a world that is diverse, equitable & inclusive; a world where difference is valued & celebrated and together we can forge women’s equality.
Without doubt, we believe wholeheartedly that healthy women are deservedly happy women and vice-versa. Thus, this is a shout out to all women regardless of age or profession, you deserve to live merrily & healthily. On this note, please join us for a 5KM/10KM virtual walk or run in cementing your support for International Women’s Day. As we are still in the midst of an unabating pandemic, virtual walk or run remains the safest option but our concerted message stands loud and clear. Grandmothers, mothers, daughters and sisters out there, let’s put on your running shoes and “break the bias” with a 5KM or 10KM virtual walk or run at your own pace and own time. Last but not the least, remember to keep a safe distance from others and mask up after your activity.
