March is International Women’s Month and although it may not feel similar to year’s past, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the holiday and honor the woman in your life who actively empower and support you. From writing down your appreciation through a card to raising a glass and showing your thanks through a toast, you can always turn to the woman around you to celebrate.
Now that we have entered a new decade, another way to celebrate is to acknowledge the women who have used their platform to inspire significant change over the past 10 years. Woman like Sara Brinkley, Alyssa Milano and Adrianna Huffington come to mind. These woman were forces to be reckoned with and came from different backgrounds and industries. This International Women’s Month, we can refer to them as “sheroes” or female heroes due to their efforts and ground gained for gender equality.
Originating from the suffrage movement, a shero is defined as a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities; a heroine. Today we also believe a shero can be everyday people who support diversity and have a strong character and sense of self. They support, encourage and push every woman to be better and are champions for gender equality. Anyone at any age and from any culture or background can be a shero.
