Today, of course, is International Women’s Day. A very beautiful day it is too. The sky is pale blue between light wispy clouds, and the Spring sun is shining gently over the green and brown hills that surround the small valley I call home.
This morning I have texted my mother and all my women friends to wish them a good day and send them my love. I have brushed my daughters first wobbly tooth, put her favourite clip in her hair, and taken her to school.
And I have watched this video, more than once. It has been made by two women, Rachael Fulton and Aimee Beveridge, both of whom are multi media journalists at Glasgow Caledonian. It is a short film that aims to provide insight into the lives of 19 different women, all of varying ages, races, and walks of life.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy International Women’s Day everyone.
