Let’s celebrate #IWD2018 today and everyday
Today #8M it is a day to celebrate. Happy International Women´s Day! #IWD18. This year motto for the celebration is #TimeIsNow and it is perfect for us. As in life, it is always the right moment to begin something and to keep on improving it. When we first sat foot on the adventure of Martirinas, we had many doubts since nothing is ever perfect at the beginning. We were lucky to follow the advice of our friend @AnaCarrauMinguez, founder of #InspiradasValencia: “The important thing is somehow to begin”, a vital motto for everyday life and for those starting a business.
TOUCHÉES BY A GLOBAL HALO OF HOPE
This year, as many others, we had been exposed to sad and unfair news around women in the media. Nevertheless, we have been also surprised by a great halo of hope globally, with courageous movements such as #MeToo and #TimesUp in United States or #NiUnaMenos in Spain. This year the defense of women´s rights is global and puts special emphasis on rural women. Martirinas wants to congratulate all the rural women that turn each day into a revolution, by feeding their families or starting a business that helps consolidate and grow local communities.
EVERYONE UNITED FOR A BETTER WORD
We can all contribute to a world which is more fair, equal and respectful with its environment and with its inhabitants. There are still many things left to do but women are already and motion. There is no time to lose, from the workplace, in our families we can all celebrate that we are here to foster a better XXI century. On a day like today, we acknowledge with gratitude and admiration the great progress achieved by previous generations of women that had preceded us and the example of those who continue to inspire us with movements such us #SheInspiresMe. Happy International Women´s Day to all the mothers, aunties, sisters, cousins, grandmothers, friends, colleagues and entrepreneurs…and all working women.
Make this day and all the rest a better day for everyone!
