Women must fix the world
8 mars 2020
A speech given at International Women’s day webinar “Women in Sustainable Business” orginanized by The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce (Carolinas, Georgia & Washington DC), March 8 2021
International Women’s Day has its origins in the early worker’s movement and women’s movement. This day is the story of ordinary women who made history. It has its roots in the struggle by women for centuries to participate in society on an equal footing with men.
This is not the day to congratulate women. This is the day to remember and acknowledge women forerunners of the past, praise women of today, and pledge for men and women to join forces to continue the hard work towards #equality. In the past, the world has often overlooked or even erased the contributions of women. International Women’s Day is an opportunity to learn about the stories of these amazing women and honor their contributions to society.
