""Know the power of women in leadership." HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿power to those women today who are taking part in "A Day without a Woman." Women are 57% of the world's population. There is no country that does not need us. No child who exists in this world without us. We have power and value equal to men. We deserve to have equal rights, equal pay, equal opportunities for education and a voice that is listened to when we speak. We are your mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, peer, coworker, boss, wife, lover, and friend. We demand respect. Support us. #internationalwomensday"

"Women are not created weaker but more generous than men. They are created more beautiful and less fierce, as beauty hates to hurt and harm others. That is why they seem weak to people, but in reality they are not. Angels are the strongest of created beings, and women are closer to the angelic nature than men, as they are readier than men to carry angelic light" - Prophet Mohammed - happy women's day ❀️"
