Do you celebrate International Women’s Day in your family/community? It is quite a big thing in the Czech Republic. My father would buy a bouquet of flowers and heart-shaped chocolate. It is as big as the Mother’s Day. Did you know that the United Nations Office in Geneva dedicated the whole week of 5-9 March to women as International Women’s Week?

And if you are wondering what to do in Geneva, here are some ideas:

  1. Parvana/ The Breadwinner
  2. Women of the Venezuelan Chaos
  3. A Woman Captured
  4. Killing Jesus
  5. A Better Man
  • Purchase a pair of nude tights and support young students from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Last year I got to know Nadine, founder of Ownbrown. Her company makes high-quality nude tights and knee-highs for women of color. Say bye to unnaturally white or dark legs! I am a huge fan of Ownbrown.

And if you purchase a pair of their tights today they will donate 50% to BEBUC. This organization gives scholarships and financially support excellent young students. It also encourages girls to apply and promotes excellence by strengthening skills and providing strong mentorship.

So here we are. These are just some of the ideas and suggestions on what to do on International Women’s Day in Geneva. I would like to end with a song  I Am Woman written and performed by Helen Reddy. it is beautiful ode on womanhood and it always lifts up my mood.

A few weeks ago I connected with two special ladies: Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge and Sherry from The Life of the Party. We decided to host a link-up to celebrate International Women’s Day together. I can’t wait to see your posts!

    What great ideas and ways to celebrate International Women’s Day. I spent it in Malibu with the La Mer team and got to meet some major girl bosses like Chriselle Lim and Aimee Song and I was literally speechless. It was amazing and I felt so blessed. I love this fab fringe jacket of yours! Such a trendy piece. xoxo, Christine

    Happy belated International women’s day! Women have always played an important role in my life and always inspired me with their strength and kindness. I personally feel that women should simply be celebrated every day of the year though!

    I support and celebrate women every day 😉 It’s sad that a specific occasion had to be created for that … it starts with respect … from January first until the end of the year!

    Cool outfit by the way 😉

    I’m celebrating the fact that us over 50’s women are starting to be heard miri! Because we’re 50 doesn’t mean fashion and beauty is non exempt and that we’re past caring.

      I love this, Laurie! I may not be 50 years old yet but I totally agree that women over 50 are stylish, elegant and most of all “authentic”. Big hugs
