International Women’s Day serves as a poignant reminder to champion diversity and pave the way for women's equality. Instead of simply imagining a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination, we must work together to create that world by ensuring every woman’s voice is heard.

This year we celebrate the generosity, resilience, and unparalleled joie de vivre of women worldwide. As part of this special day, Blue Illusion is proud to shine a light on 7 remarkable women who make what we do possible.

We sat down with them to talk about why International Women’s Day is important to them.

This International Women’s Day, we invite you to join us in celebrating the strength, resilience, and accomplishments of women everywhere. Together, let's continue the journey towards a future where equality is not just a goal but a lived reality for every woman.

“As a mother, International Women’s Day is about reinforcing the values of strength and independence in my children, especially my daughter. I want her to grow up in a world that is more equitable and kinder than the one I navigated. It's a chance to show her, through my example, what it means to be a resilient and compassionate woman.”
