Happy International Women’s Day to all my fellow ladies out there!
Always remembering those who fought for our rights. Playing one of them, a suffragette, has been such an honour. Even though she had her own personal struggles to deal with before finding her strength, she got there in the end nonetheless.
This past year has certainly brought about some changes with #metoo raising awareness to the way women are often (mis)treated not only in the entertainment industry but in our society. Unfortunately there’s still an awful lot of men out there having to learn a lesson or two with regards to respecting women.
We have come a long way regarding gender equality, particularly in the Western world, but sadly still have a long way to go especially considering other parts of the world where women are denied basic human rights and still don’t have a voice in this day and age. These problems exist even if we might not be experiencing them ourselves – whether it’d be under the pretext of culture, religion or “boys just being boys”.
Let’s keep making changes, through raising our voices to injustice and by raising boys who will grow up to be respectful men and role models to our society.
