Good afternoon, Bellas and Bellos!
Happy International Women’s Day! Today we celebrate the tremendous strides made by women all over the world towards equality.
However, we all must also remember that we are still many strides away from a truly equal world. There various ways in which women remain underrepresented, in the US and in countries all over the world. The UN General Assembly President for the sixty-ninth session, Sam Kahamba Kutesa, summed up the daunting task that people all over, and of all genders face;
“The deep-seated norms, beliefs and practices that contribute to gender-based discrimination must be confronted and changed.”
This isn’t meant to discount any of the work of women from the past, but instead inspire you all to think about how we can take steps together in the future!
Change begins with empowerment, and I must say that the women I’ve met at the studio are the embodiment of that. They are strong, intelligent, and incredibly driven. We at BellaVita are incredibly privileged to continue to work (and work out) with all of you! Remember, today is a day to celebrate history’s greatest, and a day to celebrate the greatness each of us is capable of.
Enjoy the (slightly) warmer weather this Sunday, and make sure to check back with us next week!
