International Women’s Day is coming up March 8, as it does every year. If you’re a history buff, you know this is a serious occasion marked by women of the world for over 100 years now. While it was first started by the Socialist Party in America, it has since evolved into a day marking women’s rights everywhere. In some places the day is observed with fiery protests in the quest for social progress. In others, it’s simply looked upon as a great opportunity to celebrate womanhood and the women we love. And although it’s not traditionally a time for gifts, we’re all for making it one. Because as we know, girl power is in our hands and starts with giving ourselves the love we deserve.
While International Women’s Day is officially a 24-hour event, its influence lasts year-round. To help inspire yourself, try a meaningful piece of jewelry you can wear with pride like the Mon Petit Name Necklace. Beautiful, functional and encouraging, you can personalize it with your name or a powerful message that speaks to your soul (like Balance, Breathe or Dream).
This necklace is the perfect format for sharing inspiration with the world or simply reminding yourself to take time out to breathe.
If you prefer, you can put a ring on it, with the stunning Three Is Better Than One Ring. The ultimate in girl power, this gold-plated beauty lets you choose three words, to fully express yourself as you see fit.
Whichever style you pick it’s sure to be a good choice. That’s because today is about treating yourself to something you deserve – and celebrating the amazing woman you choose to be.
This year, the official theme of International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter. That is, creating a world with better gender balance. This means an equal number of men and women in the room, on a team, or in the news.
But balance for better is more than the number of women in the boardroom. It’s also about creating balance in our lives. Finding hobbies that we love, discovering a personal style that truly expresses ourselves, and wearing that look with pride.
