Happy International Women’s Day from Vicki Igbokwe | Uchenna Dance.

Ladies (and Gents!)

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

I just wanted to wish you all a great day, week and year. In a world where many inequalities still exist lets keep working together to be the change we want to see.

It will take a meaningful effort from us all to make this world a true representation of the people who live in it. And I for one whole-heartedly believe that we can make this happen.

I wanted to share two things with you today

1. A message from Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka (click on her name) the UN’s Women Executive Director 

2. The International Women’s Day site here where you can find out about the campaign

3.  One of my favourite poems by Maya Angelou

Phenomenal Woman

BY MAYA ANGELOU

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Maya Angelou, “Phenomenal Woman” from And Still I Rise.
