Today is International Women’s Day, and this year’s campaign encourages us to “Be Bold For Change”. I’ve never labelled myself a feminist. I’m not much into the labels we impose on women. They are just another tool used to diminish and if there’s one thing I’ve learned maturing as a woman is that none of us are one-dimensional.
