It's Riya and all you may be wondering what is international women's day and when is it ? International women's day is March 8 and it's a day where women don't worry about gender inequality or the people that put you down just because you are a girl. You are a women , a girl , a female and you should be proud of what and who you are . There is no blue is for boys and pink is for girls . Since 2 years old this world of ours has been teaching us inequality silently . What if I like blue ? Would that make me a boy? Yes , according to the younger kids, girls just CANT like blue . See it starts from a young age and works it's way up . What if I want to play football? Would that make me too masculine and the new word now... Tom-boyish ? Understand that NO ONE is a tomboy or a girly-girl . WE are all women with just different interests that's all . Now need to stick a label on our foreheads saying what we are. A survey of the U.S has shown that women get paid less working the same jobs as males do . Comic books picture girls in a horrifying matter with their short skirts and the males with their bulging muscles and brains. A little girl has complained about this matter and now marvel comics recently started introducing the smart and strong females. This little girl spoke up and she has shown her voice . If we don't do anything now then when? This is not a rant but a cry for equality and the burning desire to make the world somewhat better. And Emma Watson has taught me the boys face inequality as well . Volleyball , Pink , Beyonce and reading and who knows what more , embarrasses boys . Being friends with a girl is embarrassing to them and sometimes it's also embarrassing to girls as well . We need to stop these "cliques" and start to teach our brothers , sisters and world who we girls are . Which I why I am extremely happy movies like the Hunger Games and Divergent are coming out . Shows like Eyecandy and Pretty Little Liars show a strong female lead. Oh by the way comment down below if you want me to see or read anything with a strong female lead in it . Please women show some love to the ladies in your lives and respect them and if you get a chance watch the video posted below!
