What’s your wish for women?
Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights and an increased critical mass of women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, it’s easy to think that women have gained true equality. However, the unfortunate fact is women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men.
However, since Pankhurst first forged the movement that helped women win the right to vote, great advances have been made and, tomorrow, events will be held around the world to celebrate and mark these achievements, whilst inspiring action.
One of these events is the Women’s International Summit for Health (WISH). In celebration of International Women’s Day, 40 of the world’s leading health and wellness luminaries are coming together to share their knowledge and insights. Held over 40 days, this online conference gives women the world over the chance to explore key areas of interest for women, from food, beauty and fitness to relationships, abundance and sensuality.
Amongst the distinguished list of speakers are Daniel Vitalis, a leading health, nutrition, and personal development strategist; Alice Bracegirdle, one of the world’s leading authorities on holistic fitness for women; and renowned pioneer in fertility education and genuine sexual liberation, Pamela Madsen.
Program creator, Tera Warner, says that WISH is an invitation to the multitasking miracle workers in our society. She invites participants to put themselves on top of their to do list and prioritize the areas of their lives that are most out of balance. “The laundry and dishes can wait,” she says, ” it’s time for women to step forward and step up to the call of living life fully and improving conditions around them. It’s not just a right, it’s our responsibility.”
Asked what her wish for women would be, speaker and author Marianne Williamson said this: “My wish for women is to be happy. There is so much suffering on this planet. We can’t even conceive how human existence would be if there were not human suffering. Because we are all connected on a spiritual level, all of us are affected by the unnecessary suffering in the world. You are not affected by it on a conscious level but we are all affected on a subconscious level. All of us need to evolve into a happy species and end suffering. The Bible says God himself will wipe away all tears.”
WISH runs for 40 days, with each day of the event being dedicated to a different guest. WISH presenters address a range of 10 topics that are pertinent to women’s health; sensuality, spirit, food, relationships, fitness, beauty, health, money, attitude and balance. Each day, participants will access one of the inspiring presentations which have been designed to get their most pressing questions answered.
