♀♀♀ International Women’s Day ♀♀♀ 8 March 2012

2012 Theme: CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES

If every International Women’s Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.

Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Organisations, governments, charities and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.

“Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures” is the 2012 theme of the internationalwomensday.com website and this has been widely used by hundreds of organisations including schools, universities, governments, women’s groups and the private sector. Each year the United Nations declares an overall International Women’s Day theme. Their 2012 theme is “Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty”. Many organisations develop their own themes that are more relevant to their local contexts. For example, the European Parliament’s 2012 theme is “Equal pay for work of equal value”.

lyrics ~

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

I’ve made mistakes before but I know I’m not perfect
It’s okay ’cause who could ever be
As long as I did my best
It don’t matter what no one says ’cause deep down in my heart
I got the power to make it all happen

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

At times I may just feel like my back is to the wall,
I hold my head up high
And keep on standin’ tall
I know that my back is covered
Because we have each other
And we’re down for whatever.
If you hear me throw your hands up

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Sometimes life may get you down
But you better hold your ground
Can’t nobody live your life but you
Stay true to who you are
And always follow your heart
Your heart, your heart

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

  6. Dani, thank you for an uplifting post. In a week that has us still embroiled in the struggle for equal health care, women need all the power we can get, and it’s best achieved TOGETHER! Loved the song, too.

    I’m the mother of a feisty, artistic, gender queer, funny, fabulous young woman, and I couldn’t be prouder. Peace, Amy
