Want A Better Future For Women? Achieve Your Dreams

Want A Better Future For Women? Achieve Your Dreams

Whether you know it or not, you are an integral part of the women’s rights movement.

By Petra Williams | 8th March 2016

It’s time to celebrate the amazing bra-burning women who pioneered for our rights in the past. Sometimes we forget what we owe them and try to distance ourselves from their “radical” ways. But we have to remember that, because of them, we can now vote, wear pants and work.

Is the fight for gender equality over? Not by a long shot. We have to carry on the flight to bring equality to all – both women and men. And guess what? You’re a key player in this continual battle.

Now, you may doubt that you can have any influence on women’s rights. “I’m just a [nobody, wife, mum, admin assistant].” Whatever you think is holding you back, shake it off. You’re a woman, right? Then you have all the qualities you need.

Here’s why:

1. You give life

Whether you have children or not, you have the power to give birth. The survival of the population is in the hands of women.

2. You’re an achiever

It’s phenomenal how women can juggle a career, family, housework and other responsibilities without complaint. Well, without too much complaint. Sometimes you just have to remind people of everything you do for them.

3. You’re a fighter

Women will do what it takes to ensure the happiness of their loved ones and themselves. Even if it means making the hard decisions and being hated for it.

4. You’re a collaborator

As women, we form strong communities and friendships. These networks help other women thrive and keep us afloat when life is trying to drag us down.

5. You’re a teacher

You teach the next generation what they need to know. They learn from your experiences and you try to help them avoid the same mistakes, thereby improving the future for all women.

If you identified with even one of these points, you’re a leader of change. Always have the courage to aim high and reach your dreams. Remember, you already have everything you need to succeed. By living the life of your dreams, you’re adding another rung to the ladder to help the next generation climb a little higher. Just keep going. We’re all rooting for you.
