It was a day where many women striked in protest to the economic inequality, prejudice and insecurity faced by women in the workplace.

Another Year Gone


 As Professor Dumbledore does say. It’s funny how as I get older the years seem to get shorter. Today a year is merely 1/20th of my life. Whereas when I was 4, a year was a whole quarter of my life! It’s all about perspective. Compared to this time a year ago, when I was planning for my year ahead,…
