Did you know that my mom never wanted a Mother’s Day gift from me but you be happy if I wish her on International Women’s Day? 08 March should be a special day to all of us. A day to point out the many struggles women all around the world face. A day to remind ourselves of the obstacles we as women overcame. And a day to celebrate our success.
