In Australia today has been written in my diary as “Gender Awareness Day” but in many other countries it goes by the title above. We have permission to reprint this piece written by Ellen Alexander who serves the Lord in India and has been a speaker for CBE.
It’s not about flowers and chocolates
Women are asking for respect and dignity – not just for a fortunate few,
but ALL women.
For equity and freedom to choose
To be safe in the home and on the streets
For their work and opinions to be valued
For their needs at different stages to be considered
For in their empowerment lies the empowerment of families, society and countries.
We look forwward to a day when we don’t need an International Women’s Day
When men and women will walk side by side, as God intended them to.
Until then we will work toward it and live in hope of a better tomorrow
You can make a difference…
Living in Hope
