International Women´s Day
Today it is International Women’s Day, and I could not fail to register my gratitude and admiration for my mother’s, sister’s, and friends’ friendships. Their support has been critical in my lupus journey.
I wouldn’t say life is more difficult for women, but we certainly face many challenges in our professional and family lives. Even more of it’s bundled with lupus flares.
Despite that, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions, individually – all day, every day. We can choose to challenge the status quo and call out gender bias, discrimination, and stereotyping.
We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Celebrate ourselves as lupies – fierce and strong.
Collectively, we can create an inclusive and more gender-equal world.
From challenge comes new opportunities, so let’s all choose to challenge!
