Since 1975, every March 8th International Women’s Day is commemorated, which more than a celebration, is a reminder that invites us to reflect on the struggle that women have made for their participation in society .
The fight still continues for women and girls around the world. For this reason, and thinking about the future of these little ones, today I am writing a letter to my daughter (and everyone’s), on International Women’s Day. Strollers and pushchairs for babies 2022: 19 strollers that are trending.
Letter to my daughter, on International Women’s Day
When I found out you were on your way, my heart filled with joy. When I found out that you would be a woman, my joy increased, but I also felt a little fear. Because although being a woman is something incredible and wonderful, things are not always easy for us . Parents share the reality of living with babies and children at home, in a fun viral Twitter thread.
I don’t want you to be afraid, nor do I want you to think that because you are a woman you are going to suffer or struggle more. But historically, women have had to fight with greater strength, energy and will to be able to have and exercise our rights.
That’s why I want to raise and educate you to be a strong and brave woman . That you have the impulse to follow your dreams, that you do not allow them to collapse easily and that you do not lose hope that one day you will be able to achieve everything you set out to do .
Although today there are greater spaces in society for women, there are still many territories that we have not been able to enter, and there are still some stereotypes to break down .
You have come into the world at a time that can change everything, but that requires us to continue fighting. I promise to fight for you, and for all the girls in the world . Because they deserve to live in a world where equality exists. They deserve to live in a world free of violence.
Change has been slow and to date no country has truly achieved gender equality. But with all the movements that currently exist, hopefully by the day you are an adult, this will be a reality.
I want to ask you, never allow anyone to make you feel less just for being a woman. That if someone tells you that you can’t, show them that you can with that and more. There should be no room or opportunity for abuse, mistreatment or teasing because of your gender. Raise your voice, defend yourself. Don’t make yourself small just for the comfort of others .
Violence is not something we preach at home, and I am totally against it. But if it is necessary for you to defend yourself, I will teach you how to do it and I want you to do it when you find yourself in situations that require it . Don’t be afraid to set limits on what you want or don’t want.
And on this same topic, I want to tell you that no one, absolutely no one can or should force you to do things you do not want . I know that there are people in the world with bad intentions, but that is why we are fighting right now. For that freedom and tranquility that our daughters deserve.
Being a woman is, at least for me, something that I would not change for the world, even though I have been violated, I have wanted to be silenced and I have had personal, academic and work disadvantages compared to my peers. None of that has made me or will make me give up.
We will continue in the fight. We will continue looking for fair and dignified spaces for us. We will continue marching, shouting and demanding, until finally, we achieve equality, peace and freedom for all. For you, and for all those girls who will be adult women tomorrow.
