#PressForProgress for International Women's day



So this year the theme for International Women's Day is #PressForProgress. It couldn't come at a better time too with the #metoo campaign making so much impact. This is where women all over the world are standing up against sexual harassment in the workplace.


On the International Women's day website you can sign up and choose an area to concentrate on. Obviously it's great if you can focus on them all, but I personally have chose to 'challenge stereotypes and bias'. This involves me doing the following...

  • question assumptions about women

  • challenge statements that limit women

  • always use inclusive language

  • work to remove barriers to women's progress

  • buy from retailers who position women in positive ways
