Wish: Planet 50:50

Wishing the amazing women in my life a happy International Women’s Day.

The title of the post is taken from the UN Women’s website, which states the theme for International Women’s Day this year focuses on “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”. I encourage you to read their full statement here.

As I looked with great pride and much love at my wife, daughter and granddaughter today there is so much to wish for. The UN Women’s statement is a good place to start.

  1. We can and we will – my great grandmother was a suffragette. I carry the torch. It lit my path bringing up four daughters single-handed and I know that they proudly march in her footsteps. I continue to believe, I continue to hope and I am certain that this wish, this Planet 50:50 by 2030 is achievable so long as we all quietly and resolutely keep the goal fixed front and centre and don’t get distracted by the unutterable and appalling nonsense that is darkening the world as I type.

    1. Thanks for your great comment Osyth. I see the light of your torch from over here and share your thoughts as I try to remain optimistic. I sense that sentiments are shifting in the right direction.
