International Women’s Day 2014

International Women’s Day

WAVEJourney Salutes Women Around the World

Today is International Women’s Day. While many believe that this is a day that doesn’t need special recognition, we believe it does. Throughout the ages women have struggled and to this day continue to struggle and fight for equality.

What do women want? We think it’s pretty basic what women want and deserve:

  • equal respect
  • equal jobs
  • equal opportunity
  • equal education
  • equal rights
  • equal recognition
  • equal pay
  • equal in every aspect of life

We hope you enjoy the photos we have taken of amazing women (and women to be) during our journey around this incredible planet we all share.

Cheers,

Viv and Jill

  5. Lovely photos! I believe that all women are beautiful. It is so sad that in this day so many women from around the world continue to be affected with inequalities. I hope that this will change in the near future!

  7. Wow, what a wonderful collection of images of women from around the world. Some brought back memories of women I’ve met on my travels while others ( especially the one of the women in Morocco) make me want to pack my bags and go travelling!

  9. I love your articles and so glad to be getting to know you and your travels through the blogosphere. We are setting off for Greece tomorrow so may be hit and miss for a while with the comments, but I will be back as internet allows! Beautiful photos in this post!

    • Glad you dropped in, Jackie. How exciting that you’re off to Greece – wish we were, too. Have a fantastic trip and enjoy your vacation – life is too short to blog on holiday ;)
