Women History Month

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know if you’ve heard but this months is Women’s History Month. There’s a great trend on twitter with the hashtag #becauseofher. People are tweeting about women who have influenced their lives or the course history.

Gender equality is real problem there is many stereotypes and expectations for both sexes. This causes many problems like self esteem issues,discrimination, unrealistic expectations(I.e the ideal of the perfect women body image) etc…  I won’t go into it too much in this post as I have a more detailed post on this issue planned.

The important thing is that it is important for girls of all ages to have positive role models, to let them know they can achieve whatever they want and they deserve the same respect as everyone else does.

And because of this I will be sharing some of my favorite posts from this hashtag every week through October and hopefully give you  some inspiration.

Here’s are this weeks picks:
