Marta is a Brazilian footballer, often regarded as the greatest female player of all time. She has been named FIFA World Player of the Year six times.

🇧🇷 Ainda que tenha sido eleita seis vezes a melhor jogadora do mundo, Marta está sem nenhum patrocinador de material esportivo.

As marcas ofereceram um valor muito abaixo do oferecido a atletas masculinos, fazendo com que ela recusasse as propostas.
Após esse episódio, Marta lançou a campanha Go Equal (@GoEqual_), que defende a equidade de gênero no esporte.

Sojourner Truth was an abolitionist and women's rights activist. She was born into slavery, but escaped with her daughter to freedom in 1826.

After going to court to recover her son in 1828, she became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man.

“Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about?
That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me!

I will not support these orgs like Amnesty, UN Women & NOW that claim to speak for us but have #DroppedWomen from their focus. This #InternationalWomensDay I will celebrate those who stand up and fight back! List to follow. >>
> But first I celebrate my mother, one of a kind. She bore me -- along with so many burdens. She gave me life & she gave me tennis lessons when I was in awe of @Martina & just coming out. She eventually accepted my #lesbian life & she died very too young. I miss her. #IWD2020 >

في #يوم_المراه_العالمي لابد من قصة للمرأة
ثريد اليوم عن امرأة تغلبت على اعاقتها وكاد ان يحطمها "رجل" لكنها استطاعت أن تنتصر ..أن تقف مجددا .. وأن تحب رجلا آخرا كان عونا لها في أن تتجاوز ما مرت به
قصة غريبة في يوم مميز

حياكن ثم حياكم تحت لنحكي القصة🌹
الأطفال أصحاب العيون المتسعة، ليس عنوانًا لفيلم رعب، بل هو توصيف لنوعية من اللوحات الفنية التي حققت نجاحًا خياليا في أواسط القرن الماضي، لمبتكرها والتر كين، عفوا بل لـ مارغريت كين، هذا خطأ متعمد! ما القصة ومن المبتكر، هنا تجدون قصة ممتعة نجحت فيها كين في إثبات أن النساء يستطيعون!
في صيف عام 1927 وبالقرب من نهر كمبيرلاند الذي يشق ولاية تينيسي الأمريكية،ولدت بيجي دوريس هوكينز،والتي اشتهرت لاحقا باسم مارجريت كين، حيث عاشت طفولة صعبة نتيجة فقدها للسمع بإحدى أذنيها، الأمر الذي جعلها تتأمل وجوه الناس وعيونهم بتركيز اكبر كي تفهم ما ينطقون

Every once in a while, you come across stories of extraordinary courage and unmatched determination. One such story is that of @sinha_arunima.Dr. Arunima Sinha is the worlds first female amputee to scale Mt Everest. Lets witness her story
In 2011, Arunima, a national level volleyball player was travelling in a train. Some burglars enterered the coach and demanded her gold chain, and on her refusal, pushed her her out of the moving train. She was hit by a passing train and suffered severe injuries.
This incident , which she describes as her “darkest hour”, changed her life completely. After the train incident, doctors had to amputate her leg below the knee to save her life. A rod was inserted inside her leg to provide support to the damaged limb.

When she takes her time to drink a barely warm cup of tea, let her.

She's given her time to cook your meal and serve it to you before she sat to drink her tea.

When she takes time to select a dish from the menu, let her.
Every day, for every meal she has prepared she has given her time to think about what to make, how much, and for whom.

When she takes time to dress up to go out with you, let her. She has given her time to make sure that your ironed clothes are in place & knows better than you,
where ur socks are. She has dressed up her child, to look like the most smartly dressed.

When she takes time to watch TV mindlessly, let her. She is only half concentrating and has a clock ticking in her head. Nearing dinner time, you'll see her disappear to get things ready.

Do you know #elephant family is all women group. Made of #mother, #aunts, #grandmother & all other #ladies. Most of the times Male leave herd early. Kids are looked by all female elephants in herd not only mother. Most experienced female makes all decision for family. #WomensDay
The male usually leave at the age of 12-15 years. Then keep joining & leaving herd, same or another temporarily. A kid is raised by all females. They raise them and impart all the accumulative wisdom, since an elephant has long lifespan they do have acquired wisdom.
This joining of another herd by a male is not that easy. The existing male (temporary) tries to resist. Some incidents led to fights also, which goes for days. Some such fights are fatal for one. Result of one such, where this was trying to join a herd. Was killed in infighting.

پاکستان پیپلز پارٹی کے چیئرمین بلاول بھٹو زرداری نے کہا ہے کہ پاکستان کی خواتین اب patriarchal (پدری بالادستی) اور عورتوں سے نفرت کرنے والوں کی دھونس دھمکیوں سے پیچھے ہٹنے والی نہیں ہیں۔

شہید محترمہ بینظیر بھٹو خواتین کے لیئے روشنی کا مینار ہے، جنہوں نے ان کے لئے راستے منور کیئے تاکہ ان کی محنت اور جان پر فقط ان کا اختیار ہو۔خواتین اپنی جدوجہد کو آگے بڑھائیں گی اور اگر وہ اپنے حقوق کے لئے جدوجہد کرتی رہیں تو ہر پاکستانی خاتون بینظیر ہوگی۔

In latter days from Brahma came,
To rule our land, a noble dame,
Kind was her heart and bright her fame,
Ahilya was her honoured name,” - Joanna Baillie in honour of one of the greatest Maratha woman rulers, Ahilyabai.
Ahilyabai Holkar was born in the village of Chondi in Jamkhed, Ahmednagar in 1725. She was fondly referred to as Rajmata. She was the Holkar Queen of the Malwa kingdom. Her father, Mankoji Rao Shinde, was the Patil (chief) of the village.
Her father home schooled her. She was married to Khanderao Holkar in 1733 at the age of 8. Her husband was killed in the battle of Kumbher in 1754, leaving her a widow at 21. Her only son, Male Rao Holkar ascended the throne under her regency. He too died on 5th April, 1767.

#WomenInScience #SheDared

The history of science has often seen the contributions of women being overlooked. This #WomensDay, we are paying a tribute to unsung Indian women who blazed new trails in science.

THREAD: Bibha Chowdhury, India's unsung pioneer in particle physics.
1/ Born in 1913, Bibha was supposedly India's first woman researcher.

Yet, neither does the name of this gifted physicist surface in any book on inspiring Indian women, nor is she mentioned amongst various lists of Indian pioneers in the history of science. #WomensDay
2/ Bibha also did not win any national award or receive a fellowship from a renowned scientific society during her lifetime.

And yet, in 1949, she was handpicked by none other than Homi Bhabha to join the newly established Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai.

#Iranian women key players in anti-government protests in Iran…
Iranian women are at the forefront of anti-government protests in #Iran challenging the misogynous rule of the clerical regime.
Dec 2017/Jan 2018 #Iranprotests
Women played a significant role in the protests. In many parts of Iran, women were the first to chant “down with Khamenei”, the regime’s Supreme Leader, which then turned into the key slogan of the uprising, targeting the regime in its entirety.

द्विधाकृत्वात्मनो देहमर्धेन पुरुषोभवत्
अर्घेन नारी तस्यां स विराजमसृजत्प्रभु। - #Manusmriti

“In the beginning, the world was equally split into two and from one part man was created, while from the other a woman.”
Note The EQUAL split. #Hinduism #InternationalWomensDay
No. Not created from a man because he was bored and lonely. Woman isn’t a man’s entertainment.
परपत्नी तु या स्त्री स्यादसंबन्धा च योनित:
तां ब्रूयाद्भवतीत्येव सुभगे भगिनीति च।
A woman who isn’t your wife and who isn’t related by birth should be addressed respectfully as “Blessed” “thou” or “Sister” respectfully. - #Manusmriti #WomensDay

Wouldn’t SM be wonderful then?

For all the #women who’ve ever felt disregarded, ignored, used, or silenced – you’re not alone.

It’s a #FolkloreThursday - #WomensDay story thread called

“Blow Me (One Last Hat)”

IMAGE: Title card for "The Goose Girl", Robert Anning Bell, 1912
Once upon a time, a long-ruling Queen had a daughter (who we’ll call Gigi, which is long for GG which is short for Goose Girl) who she loved very much. Nice to see some genuine familial affection for once, generally it’s the parents causing the mayhem.
The time had come for Gigi to leave home & travel to a distant kingdom where her fiancé, the prince waited. As she was Queen’s only child, the departure was, emotional.
GIGI: Mom, calm down.
