INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2012 'CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES'
Thursday 8th March 2012

Five years ago in January 2008, we formed Women Of Antigua (WOA) as a response to the issues for women in Antiguan Communities at the time, specifically the safety of women. We began our association because we wanted to lend our support and assistance, however we could, as we advocated to END VIOLENCE against women and children. Today we celebrate International Women's Day 2012 with the rest of the world, and we want to encourage each of you to do whatever you can to end women's stories of violence.
 
Activism should be embraced by everyone. We can all find ways to assist those that need it most, because there so much to do. This year's IWD theme is 'Connecting girls, inspiring futures', it is important for us as the adults to take ownership of our role in ensuring a safe environment for our girls.
 
Celebrate today with the women in your lives.

Embrace the young girls that you come in contact with, let them know you are there for them as they travel through the difficult stages of maturity.
The lives of our girls are our own. We MUST protect them.

To sustain life, we must sustain women.
 
Check out the events and campaigns happening around the world today at International Women's Day 
 
Spread the word, "We can all do something to help."
