Where there is a woman, there is magic!

Where there is a woman, there is magic!

Even though the world haven’t really reached a point where everyone is placed as equal on all fronts;

There are still significant changes in different societies through people who are working towards the change.

One thing is certain, women have come a long way in history. 


Why do we need a certain day to celebrate womanhood? Why is that so important?


Answer is gender equality. The world hasn’t really done away with it so far. Why so?


  • Because gender gap is still prevalent even in developed countries.
  • Because research shows that the number of educated women is still on the lower side.
  • Because violence against women is ‘normal’.
  • Because of the various stigma and stereotypes around women.



Hence on March 8th, women (and men)across the world come together to celebrate a day dedicated to them. They come together as one to show the world that these differences need to be eradicated.

Which women according to you had the biggest impact on the world?
