Women United Never Divided

This month, I celebrated women day. It is my first time that I celebrated the international women day. To celebrate before our teacher sent us a mail about this day we have to wear pink color dress. So that day we all wore pink color dress. Our male teachers also wore pink color dress. At lunch time, our male teachers gave us rose and candy. That was the first time that, on this day someone gave me flower as a women. At evening we were all arranged a rally. We all attended this rally by holding a candle and we all were giving slogan that “women united never divided”. All the local people are astonish to see that because most of them do not give priority this day. Some of them also don’t know about this. After that we all came to our university. Our university arranged a program about the women day. Some students gave presentation about successful woman of their country. One Afghani girls said about Malalai Joya, one Burmese said about Aung san su kyi. Our female teachers also gave speech about the importance of their mother or any female person. At last they showed us a movie, and we cut a cake.

women united!

Afroza dear,

This is amazing and exciting! I'm so happy to hear that you had a powerful International Women's Day in Bangladesh.I loved reading that men also participated and wore pink. That is fantastic. Change will come with men and women working together!
I know this will be the beginning of a new tradition. Honoring women, and compelling change! Thank you for sharing this exciting happening with the PulseWire community! It's so great to hear that each year more women are standing up, and making ground towards positive change.

Hugs Sister,
Jody
