This year’s International Women’s Day is like no other. As the country is still dealing with the impact of the global pandemic, many are forced to work from home.
Looking from a different angle, the current situation can be an opportunity for us to explore our dreams. As we are working from home and spending more time indoors, we have more time to ponder what we want in life, especially the dreams that are deep down.
For many women out there, we know you must be busy taking care of your kids while working from home. It’s not easy. And sometimes, it can make you give up your dream.
Women, we heard you! We understand your situation, and we want to give you the confidence and courage to achieve and excel online, especially if you are thinking about kickstarting your entrepreneurship journey.
First and foremost, let us talk about what International Women’s Day means to us.
“International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate women’s contributions to society, raises awareness about the fight for gender parity, women’s rights, and inspires support for organizations that help women globally.”
“Gender parity is a statistical measure that compares women and men through their income, education, and work hours, among other points. This sociological metric helps researchers understand how society is progressing or regressing in specific areas. It’s also an important tool for policymakers striving towards gender equality.”
“Of course, the global celebration of International Women’s Day is a time for reflection of how far women have come, advocacy for what is still needed, and action to continue breaking down barriers. With over a century of history, International Women Day is a growing movement centered around unity and strength.”

What is the theme for International Women’s Day 2021?
In 1975, the United Nations officially recognized International Women’s Day, and, in 1996, began to adopt an annual theme for every year. But here, we started from 2016 until this year, 2021.
- 2016 – #PledgeforParity
- 2017 – #BeBoldforChange
- 2018 – #PressforProgress
- 2019 – #BalanceforBetter
- 2020 – #EachforEqual
- 2021 – #ChooseToChallenge
The United Nation also issued the theme for 2021: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-10 world”, which means celebrating efforts of girls and women in creating a more equal future and COVID-19 pandemic recovery.
