The United Nation’s acknowledge and celebrate the role of women and girls around the world in creating a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Most health care workers, caregivers, community organizers are composed of women. The pandemic is yet again another avenue in which the world sees the importance of women in combating the outbreak of a global pandemic. 

Once again, women have proven to the world that they are strong, resilient, and dependable.

According to the United Nations “International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women, who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

The world has made unprecedented advances, but no country has achieved gender equality.”

We can always play our part.

The pandemic is not just a health issue. It impacted our societies and economies, and it is an undeniable fact that women are at the heart of care and response efforts underway. 

Homes have become offices, classrooms, and meeting places – and mothers, are the heart of it all. 

It has been a year since the pandemic happened and for the past year, the home has become the center of the growth and development of every child, every human being. Unlike pre-pandemic days, children’s well-being can be attributed to home, school, and its immediate environment. With the outbreak of the pandemic, the home has taken that responsibility alone. responsibility alone. And for that, every family member must create an ambiance, conducive to learning, working, and virtual interaction without compromising the essence of a real home.

    well said Mich! Love how you tied ambiance in here … but also the Taj fits perfectly with this theme also.

    Sadly more women have lost their paid employment, DV is up 40% over the past year … so altho women are standing tall, men have shrunk!

      Thank you kate..you are right DV victims increased during the outbreak of of the pandemic, sadly because these women are living along with their perpetrators. While some women are making a difference helping the world recover from COVID 19 others are sufferìng silently at home.
      Your prompt too lead me to a thought; how is home coping with the pandemic now that it has become a venue for anything and everything.

  10. I love your poem and appreciate you highlighting the role of women during the pandemic – they are the caretakers at home and at the frontlines. I will now look at Woman’s day with a deeper significance.
