It has been over a century since International Women’s Day (IWD) was officially honoured for the first time in 1911, yet in 2015, we are still fighting for gender equality. Whilst women’s suffrage in the early 20th century eradicated gender as a point of discrimination in relation to electoral rights, we still have a long way to go in terms of eradicating gender inequality.
Since British actress Emma Watson made an inspirational speech in September last year at the UN Assembly in New York, celebrities, politicians, global leaders, from Beyoncé to UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, women and men all around the world have united in support of Emma Watson’s HeforShe campaign for achieving women’s empowerment and gender equality.

On behalf of Jadorais, we three sisters based around the world unite in support of this great cause. Let us all join in solidarity and support for gender equality and empowering women.
Every girl and boy has the right to a good education. Every man or woman should have the right to choose their career paths and be given equal rights, support and opportunities in any chosen field, regardless of the gender, background or race.
Happy International Women’s Day. Let’s all unite in support for gender equality and empowering women.
Love from mini Jadorais.
