While a couple of international events just rolled out, there’s yet another reason to celebrate. Which means hordes of facebook posts and tweets, selfies with female BFF and many more. With pinks everywhere and March 8 posters at the end of every street, it’s time to bring a meaningful celebration and extend support to #balanceforbetter. We may have a long way left to go, but we’ve certainly come pretty far from where we once were. With our feminist forebears in mind, let’s celebrate this March 8 with some badass old and new ideas.

Balance For
Our genes not only hold information about us but they can narrate our history from decades ago. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, but it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies that thrive in the real world today (ref. 6 Modern Societies Where Women Rule BY Laura Turner Garrison)

In the pre-historic period like how few of the Indian cinemas portray, it was women who completely ruled and were the independent decision makers. Right from there, what was called as multitasking was introduced. She after giving birth can immediately become a feeding mother while she can also be a homemaker. With inadequate rest, she stepped out of her labour room to help men in running the government successfully.

The modern history is exciting, with technology all around and independent women stepping foot everywhere like what John Steinbeck quoted in Travels with Charley: In Search of America, said “And finally, in our time a beard is the one thing that a woman cannot do better than a man, or if she can her success is assured only in a circus.” To create a better world, we need balance. Balance through freedom, activism, opportunities and of course gender. Right from the statue of liberty to Lady justice, womenkind has been there guarding and leading. Can you say this is a statement of feminism? Not really as it was men who constructed these strong statues.

In a fast pacing world where equality and balance has become a business issue, it very essential for growth and it is a social responsibility. As socially responsible citizens at Clipcanvas we thrive for empowerment and accelerate gender equality. With female skills and talent, we build opportunities and develop leadership abilities. So open your arms and pose for the Internation Womens Day and extend your support to #Balanceforbetter. Together we can make this March 8 a meaningful one.
