At MUTU System we believe in women. We believe in your power, your voice and the value that you bring to this world. ✊ This International Women’s Day, making a difference doesn’t have to mean marching for change or shouting the loudest. The real change-makers are those raising the next generation of children, who will know what it means to be a good human.
Your voice and your influence matter. You don’t have to be a Michelle Obama, Malala Yousafzai or Melinda Gates to make real change in this world. It’s those raising good humans that will have the greatest impact on our world.
On the 8th of March we celebrate International Women’s Day, and although there is SO much to celebrate and rejoice, so many incredible and powerful women doing their thing and showing the world that they can, we MUST talk about and highlight how far we still have to go.
A Film by MUTU System for International Women’s Day
We’ve made massive steps towards equality, but it’s not enough.
And 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, regardless of age, background or country.
And It’s estimated that 200 million girls and women alive today have undergone some form of Female Genital Mutilation.
And in some of the most developed and influential countries in the world, Black women are up to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes than white women are.
We are so proud to get behind this year’s theme for International Women’s Day #ChooseToChallenge
As human beings, we each have a responsibility to make changes individually, to create a bigger movement. Your voice is powerful. Use it in any way you can. Empower, teach, take a stand, be kind.
