International Women's Day 2022
Today is International Women’s Day, an annual celebration since 1911. International Women’s Day is now in its 111th year and will no doubt be celebrated all over the world!
International Women’s Day is a day dedicated to recognising women and what they have achieved in work, society and beyond.
Today, we want to talk about the exceptional ways in which women have stepped up and fought to change the situation they are in Ukraine. We are all distraught about the devastating situation in Ukraine, a battle that started almost three weeks ago. Millions of civilians have had their lives turned upside down, have been uprooted and have had to flee to safety.
What is remarkable though, is the number of Ukrainian men and women who have offered their services as soldiers, to combat this invasion and to ensure Ukraine becomes a free country once again. The number of female civilians, many of which have no military background, is exceptional and shows us once again how determined women are, even in the face of danger. The way in which these women are dedicating their lives to the front line is nothing short of amazing and a true inspiration.
To the incredible people of Ukraine, we stand with you today and every day.
