Imagine creating art as you attempt to flee to safety in your war-torn country. This is the art of Nadiya Sadirova. Nadia’s artist statement, an ode to International Women’s Day #IWD2022, is a reminder of how fragile and precious peace is; sometimes to be found only in our dreams.
Now we all try to contribute something to the victory of our country. Days and nights we are in stressful infospace, we are reading news every minute. And we are very worried for those who are at the front line and thanks to whom we have a chance for a nap. And in dreams that might last no longer than half an hour, between air raid sirens, we all dream of peace.
When we do not volunteer or do something, we pray, visualize, make wishes and dream of peaceful future. And currently, dreams are the only place where we can find peace. -Nadia Sadirova
Here is an explanation of International Women’s Day, along with collective action we can take to #BreakTheBias – information retrieved directly from: https://www.internationalwomensday.com/
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
International Women’s Day is powered by the collective efforts of all
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
Collective action and shared ownership for driving gender parity is what makes International Women’s Day impactful. 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 organization 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.
