Happy International Women’s Day!

Calling all mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, and grandmothers! Today is your day to band together and celebrate International Women’s Day. Today we recognise the economic, political and social triumphs of women everywhere.

Every year more than a thousand events are organised across the world to recognise International Women’s Day. Which marks the occasion and raise awareness of gender equality issues and celebrate female achievements across the world. Women have done so much for our society. For example, did you know that things we take for granted every day such as the the coffee filter? Lets not forget water heaters, windscreen wipers and the humble chocolate chip cookie. These were all invented by women.

Conceived in 1909, International Women’s Day (originally called International Working Women’s Day) is marked on March 8th every year. In many cultures the day is marked as a national holiday, although unfortunately we’ve no such luck in the UK…

International women’s day recognise the successes of women. It also highlights the work that still needs to be done towards gender equality throughout the world, and what you can do to help.

As a business, Lingua Translations would never have existed were it not for the passion and dedication of our two female directors. So we’re fully aware of the ability of women to succeed in what can sometimes feel like a male-dominated society.

So in recognition of International Women’s Day, we would like to say a big thank you for the achievements of women across the world. What are you doing to celebrate?
