International Women’s Day

Speech for International Women’s Day
by Mani Amar

Written March 7th, 2009
Presented March 8th, 2009

To all guests of event at Simon Fraser University (Surrey) Campus

Dear Sisters,

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year around the world, it is a day that connects women together, a day to celebrate your beauty.

However, I am here to advise you that you shouldn’t be celebrated only once a year. But every day.

I am here to advise you that many sisters around the world do not feel celebrated.
In the western world we celebrate Equal Rights. In fact, we, the western world tell the rest of the world that if you come to our lands, you will be free, in the most complete sense.

About Me
In self-reflection; I can honestly say all that is good in my life has been a direct result of my artistic expression. Be it through writing poetry, prose, or philosophy, through painting or photography, or through filmmaking, art saved my life and it can save yours.
