Happy international women's month!
Empowered women empower women. We celebrate this day and salute and support all women, whether they were born with a vagina or not.
Don't forget to give your favorite woman a hug. Tell her she's beautiful. Tell her she's great and deserves all the best. Build her self-esteem and confidence.
Silence all the negativity we face every day, from unrealistic beauty standards to career limitations. Never hesitate to silence the negativity. You don't have to be negative yourself and use invective language (although you are an awesome, funny, witty person while being irreverent!) Speak up for young women who have yet to develop their own courage to speak up themselves next time.
Support your female colleagues and female-led businesses. Gender parity is still a long way off, and so is equal pay. But we are getting there! And so many women entrepreneurs are leading by example. It's wonderful to see!
There may not be many women at the top in many sectors, but we are certainly on the right track!
With that in mind, here are our suggestions for empowering gifts - for yourself and for others.
Give phones, tablets and laptops to girls who are homeschooling.
This is now our high-tech version of the fight against girls' school dropout. Since many children are still at home or choose to stay that way, you can help those who need gadgets to connect with their school and teachers.
Do you have your own homeschoolers? Make sure they are equipped with stands and desks to help them in their Zoom classes.
Donate to women's shelters.
Worldwide statistics show distressing numbers of women living in poverty and in abusive situations. Women's shelters provide the help these women need to get back on their feet.
Support women-owned businesses.
Buy products from them and then share your stories about their products on social media. Do you have friends who have a business? Give them some indestructible cases to protect their phone, because many of them do business via a smartphone!
Offer time and recognition.
Spend time with the best women in your life. Tell them how much they mean to you, give them the compliments they need, and show your love by giving them small but meaningful gifts that will make them smile, like thismarbled design AirPods case for music lovers, and this adjustable, non-slip iPad stand for a young mom who won't always have both hands free for her iPad, but will certainly need it in her bedroom or on the kitchen counter!
Give them gift certificates to brands founded by women.
It's a win-win-win. You support women-owned businesses and let your friend buy what she wants. Let's face it, it's really hard to shop for women, even when you know them so well.
So let them pick out their own gifts. It's like a miniature, fun version of Women's Choice!
Make them feel good with a nice leather phone case
Leather represents sophistication and success. It reminds us girls to break glass ceilings, never underestimate ourselves and chase our dreams.
A leather case is something you or your recipient can slip on to go to the office or for an important meeting with a client.
And then, you know what, embrace your femininity. Embrace your love for pretty and cute things. We don't need to use masculine objects to have power.
Go ahead and dress up your phone with the cutest cases and conquer the world with a smile.
Don't forget to be kind to yourself.
Know what you are worth. You are absolutely wonderful and deserve to be loved, admired and reach your full potential.
Take a good bath and realign your goals. It's just a matter of hard work and grit, just like everyone else. Nothing can stop you. The whole world is truly your playground.
Happy International Women's Day!
