“Celebrating Women Online: 7 Simple Ways to Make a Difference!”

Hey, all you amazing people!

It is Women’s Day and today, we’re talking about celebrating women online and the simple ways we can make a difference in their lives. It’s time to take a stand for our sisters and honour them for all the amazing things they do. Let’s make this a special moment for the women in our lives, and show them how much they mean to us!

The theme for International Women’s Day 2023: “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality

Did you know?

Women account for nearly half the world’s population but 37% of the women do not use the internet and 259 million fewer women have access to the Internet than men. Help just one woman to come online today #InternationalWomensDay2023

7 Simple Ways to Celebrate Women Online and Make a Difference

Here goes…

  1. Give the women you know online a shoutout. Write a review for them. Share their work. Let others know about them too. Celebrate their talents.
  2. Follow 5 new accounts by women on your social media. Or 10, 15, 100… it all depends on how much time you spend online. Let’s do it!
  3. Buying something? Buy from a woman. Buy their books, paintings, goodies… Support businesses run by women. Every little bit matters.
  4. Host a live chat for women. Talk about whatever interests you. Share your news. Just connect!
  5. Mentor a woman today. Do you know someone who is struggling to learn something? To create something? A newbie trying to get the hang of something? Someone from another country who doesn’t have access to as many resources as you? Lend a helping hand. Every small step forward is progress.
  6. Is there a campaign or fundraiser for women that you know of? Join it. Or spread the word. Help, in any way you can.
  7. Post a picture, an inspiring quote or a story about women. Celebrate them. Celebrate their efforts as much as their achievement.

If you have read this far, I know you are already trying to give a leg up to women. After all, you just read a post by a woman! But seriously, I am so glad that you are taking the time to make a difference.

Thank you for joining me in this initiative. Together we can make a positive impact. So dive in, and make your voice heard… inspire, uplift, and empower women because they are so worth it.

Happy Women's Day 2023

  1. This brings to mind a couple weeks ago when I had an overnight sleep study at the neurology lab to test settings for a breathing machine: it took time to attach and check something like 30 sensors and electrodes so the tech gal and I got to talking. Likewise when disconnecting them after study was over. Turned out that she’s in to math and science and aviation and ancient history; wrote her thesis on the math relationships in the Great Pyramids; plays on volleyball and soccer teams, I think for one of the several colleges in the city; was invited to go to the Air Force Academy.

    When I was leaving after the overnight study she offered to put on her coat and help this old guy with a cane carry his bag out to his van. After putting my bag in the van she reached out to shake my hand and said “thank you” to me. What? What is she thanking me for? Of course I did reply and shake her hand.

    While sitting in van eating some things I’d brought along for breakfast before driving home, a thought formed; “Ya know, because she’s a gal, and a pretty gal, I wonder if people just don’t allow her the room to geek out about the math and science and technical things which interest and inspire her. And since those things interest me and we talked about them, I affirmed her and her skills and interests without even realizing that’s what was happening.”

    1. That’s so true! Sometimes women have to work twice as hard just to be seen for who they are, we are not even talking about being accepted or understood. The problems in underdeveloped countries are way more acute. Even the simple right to equal food, facilities and education is not the norm everywhere, especially in rural areas, and though things are improving, we still need to go a long way.
