International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on March 8. The day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911. The day is not country, group or organisation specific - and belongs to all groups collectively - everywhere.
Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
So, make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women. This global day, let’s all celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This collective day is for global celebration and a call for gender parity.
International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally - at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women's Day continues to grow from strength to strength.
At KAILO Wellness Medispa we believe that not only on this day, but every day, should be about empowering and celebrating all the women around us. At KAILO, being a woman to us means having strength, grace and class - but most importantly a kind heart! That is what true beauty is.
We love all our guests and we believe in supporting and nurturing the many women in our lives. In celebration of International Women's Day this year we chose to capture eight of our amazing guests and ask them what they love about being a woman.
