“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half its citizens.“- Michelle Obama
International Women’s Day is globally celebrated to recognize all that women have achieved, in the social, economic, cultural and political realms. And there’s something new to celebrate this year! The 8th of March 2022 invites all people to rally for women’s equality and gender parity, under the banner of #BreakTheBias.
Bias makes moving ahead very difficult for many women and a little action – in terms of breaking the bias – goes a long way towards leveling the playing field.
In the words of John Lennon: Imagine…
…Imagine a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
“It’s easy if you try”
Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias. Where there’s a will there’s a way…
“It isn’t hard to do …
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace”.
Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and behaviour. All day. Every day.
“You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”
The first gathering of supporters for International Women’s Day was in 1911. A hundred years on, the Get Up and Go Diaries and Journals are here to assist us in enhancing leadership and inspiring women all over the world. Unleash your own leadership potential through self-awareness, embarking on a journey of self-mastery and owning your self-expression.
“Find your identity, your true self and live your mission … Your power is your radical self. Find it.” – Aya Chebbi
Break The Bias this International Women’s Day by empowering yourself, or another woman leader you know, through the giving of a beautifully presented Get Up and Go Leadership Journal with its quirky fun style and easy layout.
In this Journal, as in all the Get Up and Go publications, you will get
- insights into the minds of great leaders through their very words

Have this Women’s Day, and every day that follows, be a day where women can face the future with courage and confidence, willing to speak up, and inspiring others to do the same. Help other women to achieve by encouraging them to go beyond their fears – to discover their greatness. It takes a village, and we are the villagers, sisters and brothers in life.
On this Women’s Day, let us be united in Breaking the Bias and Building the Bridges to a fairer future.
