First of all, what does #PressforProgress even mean? Well, for International Women’s Day, a theme is created that we can collectively get involved in.

Since the Hollywood scandals erupted in the media, gender parity has been more exposed than ever before. Whilst it’s common knowledge that gender equality won’t happen overnight, the movement to push forward and progress for the equal rights of women is more prominent than ever before.

Women around the globe are marching together. We are unified for one cause. 
That cause being – US.

International Women’s Day isn’t a day just for feminists. It’s a day for advocacy and support. It’s the one-day where we can really share the successes of women, no matter what age or race etc.

For me, #PressforProgress means knowing where I stand and fighting for where I want to be. As a career driven woman, it’s important for me to strive to be the best I possibly can be, to lead a life I can be proud of and to confidently be heard and know that my opinion is respected.

It’s also about being involved in a movement that’s much bigger than myself, bigger than any person, organisation or country. Bringing people together – not just women, everyone together, collectively to make progress in an initiative that’s been holding women back since the dawn of time.

The more voices heard. The closer we are to succeeding. It would be great to see in my lifetime, a better more equal society for women.

Remember, empowered women, empower other women! Let’s #PressforProgress together.
