For me, International Women’s Day is about recognising the achievements of women, which often go unnoticed, yet we make up about 50% of the human population. I’m generally a quiet person about my achievements. There are things I have achieved that I never mention, not even at home, possibly due to my upbringing where the achievements of men were considered to be more important, though this is definitely changing now.
