March 8, 2022 was International Women’s Day, the day when women take center stage. On this day, we fight hard for equality in our society, although of course we must do it every day. Because even in 2022, unfortunately, there is still an urgent need for this. Companies put their employees in the spotlight on social media, and many statements are made public.
A little history: International Women’s Day was established a long time ago. Namely, in 1908. That year, 15,000 women marched in New York City to demand better wages, voting rights, and reduced working hours. This caused the ball to start rolling all over the world. In 1911 Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland celebrated International Women’s Day for the first time.
Nowadays we (mainly) compete a lot on social media. Adidas, Netflix, 3FM, Linda and de Bijenkorf, among others, shared a post or statement on their Instagram channel. The latter shows a sneak peek at the various events in stores on Instagram. These are all meant to celebrate a woman’s extra strength. When you purchase a product from a women-run brand, you can take a professional photo for free, for example for your LinkedIn profile.
