International Women’s Day

Before I start this, I clearly include ALL women in this.

Each year IWD is given a theme, which often relates to contemporary events, trends and struggles. This year the focus is on ‘breaking the bias‘. Which is so cool, and I do wonder if it has something to do with the hatred that the trans community has been experiencing.

As I was writing:

“Courageous feminism means no woman must be left behind – and that means trans women too” Karen Price ; The Guardian (Australia) Sat 5 Mar 2022 06.00 AEDT

Also, I freaking just hate Rowling. Not even sorry, I just hate her. She gives women every a bad name.

What I would like to know is, who are your inspirational women? #IWD2022

I would say that I am inspired by a lot of the women in my family. In all honesty (mainly my mums side). My great grandfather, missed a part of her leg from polio, but not one ever considered her disabled. She had a child out of wedlock and never pretended her was her “younger” brother. My grandmother taught me about Reiki, Tarot meditation. She travelled overseas and backpacked by herself, in her 50’s and helped people with AIDS/HIV. My mum, brought up my brother and I with pretty much no help from my Dad.

Every other I admire, is just a little bit extra.

And I know myself doing “Twitter” isn’t enough.

Also I got my booster done, and I am doing well! My arm hurts like a …

Although, most, if not all Museums are shut, only for a moment. Did you know that, for the moment, you can still virtually see Museums! Some of them extremely well known! So now you have no excuse to see some of the most famous Museums in the world!

The British Museum – Egyptian Sculpture Gallery

Amsterdam – Van Gogh Museum

Paris – The Lourve Museum

London – The Charles Dickens Museum

A lot of museums are now asking for donations, so that they can reopen when they are allowed. On my Discord channel. We’re discussing about more book or author related Museums. The Charles Dickens museum, as an example. Requires 30,000 POUNDS A MONTH to cover everything.

It’s the Kings day today!

Well, in Australia it is.

Annually, August the 10th is World Lion Day.

I’ll list a couple of facts, but the King of the…Jungle?

  • A lioness group is called a pride.
  • A group of male lions is called a coalition.
  • While Lionesses do most of the hunting, male lions will help with a kill when they are nearby.
  •  Both males and females have a very powerful roar that can be heard up to 8 km (5 mi.) away.
  • The more voluminous the mane, the greater the appeal of the male.

*Maybe he’s born with it*

  • African lions are considered vulnerable of extinction by the IUCN Red List
  •  Distemper is spread to lions by neighbouring village dogs as well as hyenas.
  • Since Mufasa and Scar were brothers and there is not mention of another male lion, or Scar being Nala’s Uncle…Nala and Simba are, at the very least, cousins. If not half brother and sister. In reality “Simba” would never taken over, he would have been eventually chased off.

  • Lions don’t tend to live in Jungles, they can be found in Africa south of the Sahara and in Northwest India.
  • African Lions are called…well African Lions and Indian Lions are called Asiatic Lions.

United Nations Day

United Nations Day

Who are the United Nations?

The United Nations is an International organisation which was founded in 1945. Just after World War II, to found International Peace.

Due to the powers vested in its Charter and its unique international character, the United Nations can take action on the issues confronting humanity in the 21st century, such as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more.

I’m every woman…

So I’ve swapped around my Share Your World post to Friday instead so we can talk about me…Nah, just kidding…Just women:

Now I just want to start off with saying “Calm Down…There is an International’s Men’s Day…November the 19th…Which is on a Monday this year….

I may also be using a lot of gif of women I admire in this post

What does it mean to me to be a “Woman”

(The Queen of course!)

Too me being a women means to be powerful and by powerful I don’t mean to have power over other people. It’s about the power of believing yourself. It’s the power of your convictions and morals and sticking to them. Whether that is to sing loudly from the top of your lungs or whether to just march with others. When the whole world is against you.

Women bring up other Women, Queens make other Queens…Even when you don’t agree…Far too much I see girls trying to bring women down.

A woman who can laugh at herself, when she’s at her most beautiful, but still is not “feeling it”.

Women who can cry…because they know that crying doesn’t make them weak.

Women move their bodies like no one is watching, even when the world is…and they LOVE it! They don’t judge others for how they move either.

A women will still have insecurities…Whether that be her body, her work, has she really go it all…But she doesn’t hurt the others around her still. She recognises that her “faults” are not to be put on others.

International Women’s Day

Today is officially Internationals Women’s Day…I say officially because I got all confused last week when people starting talking about “World Book Day” every where has different different dates. So I thought that I had better double check. Seems like today is the official day.

Every year there is also a theme for that year, this year the theme is #BeBoldForChange.

International Women’s Day: #BeBoldForChange website

How will you be Bold for a Change?

This is a great day to reflect and take a look at those women who we admire and why we admire them. Too take a look at ourselves and question what we can do to make the lives of others better. Not just women, but for all. I think considering the type of people who are in charge of running our countries, not just the orange Oompa Loompa, we NEED to take a long hard look at ourselves and see what we’ve become.

Siblings Day – Wikipedia

I am a big sister and I only have one little brother and this video cracks me up, because it is so true! I miss my little brother sometimes, he lives interstate and sometimes I just miss him terribly, but than other times I think sometimes it’s the distance that makes us closer.
