‘When women support each other, incredible things happen’ – Viola Davis
It’s International Women’s Day, a day we ladies come together to look back on how far we’ve come, to focus on what more can be done towards achieving gender equality and to celebrate just how amazing women are.
‘How I love being a woman’ is trending on TikTok, where women around the world are sharing their favourite things about being a woman. And although those big career moves and challenging stereotypes are all great achievements, sometimes it’s those little moments that make us the proudest to be women.
From those wine nights that are the only therapy we need, to how our bodies transform when we’re pregnant and even that support hub we get from strangers when visiting the ladies’ bathroom, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite reasons why we love being women.
OUR MIRACLE BODIES
The female body is a miracle. Our body’s ability to transform to procreate and give life into the world is truly the most special gift of all. But not only that we should celebrate how our bodies are unique to us no matter what shape and size we are. It’s time to shake what our mamas gave us.WATCH TIKTOK
THE UNBREAKABLE FEMALE FRIENDSHIP
When you have a close female best friend it’s an unbreakable bond and one that’ll take you to the care home together. You’ll share special moments throughout your lives and even when you’re old and grey – like these two adorable ladies – you’ll still be meeting up to debrief on your lives and copying each other’s style.WATCH TIKTOK
INSIDE THE LADIES’ BATHROOM
It’s hard to find a more supportive place to be other than in the ladies’ bathroom. Whether it be complimenting each other’s looks or if you need a tampon, girl groups meeting in the toilets are the best support system and you’ll make friends for life.WATCH TIKTOK
Who needs therapy when you have your wine nights? You’ll have some of the deepest conversations that will really help you get through anything. Whether it be discussing your goals for the future or just needing cheering up by spending quality time with your girls, mate dates are so very important.WATCH TIKTOK
OUR FEMININE ENERGY
It really is about those little things in life. Whether that be putting on some makeup to feel better about ourselves, popping a pair of earrings in or even spraying our favourite perfume, these small actions help us embrace that feminine energy and instantly boost our mood.WATCH TIKTOK
GETTING READY TOGETHER
From swapping clothes to makeup recommendations and curling each other’s hair, there are no better feel-good vibes than when you’re getting ready together. It’s the best time for advice and just to get everything off your mind. It’s especially a vibe when you’re getting ready on holiday sipping on a Fanta lemon and sharing a packet of Lays.WATCH TIKTOK
EMBRACING OUR CURVES
Our lovely lady lumps can come in very handy when it comes to small life struggles. Carrying heavy files? Perch them on our hips. Sick of reaching out to the side table to drink our iced coffee? Rest it on our boobs. Our lumps and bumps are perfect for daily life hacks.WATCH TIKTOK
OUR VERSATILE CONVERSATIONS
When we’re all together, we all know how to put the world to rights. Whether it be the little things like how long our periods go on for and if we’re in sync, to deeper things like discussing how we think the world was created, there’s honestly no judgement or boundaries when chatting with the women in your life.WATCH TIKTOK
