The theme for International Women’s Day 2017 & my contribution to one of two speeches I will be giving this and next month for International Women’s Day. #BeBoldForChange @BeBoldForChange


Be bold for change
Equality is not just a buzzword
Begin the change within your life
Open your heart, eyes and mind
Love the world and all within
Diversity is the key to survival
Freedom of thought, expression and love
Ought to be a given
Rather than a hard fought fight
Can we make a change for all?
Have we got the right?
Already the world is turning on a knife
Now is when we must step up
Grow and learn and encourage others
Especially, never give up!
