WWE Women’s Roster Celebrates International Women’s Day

wwe_womensday

Every year March 8 is officially celebrated as International Women’s Day. It is a day to celebrate, inspire, acknowledge and look back at the accomplishments and triumphs of the women in our society as well as to recognise the present issues faced by the fairer sex.

The Women’s Revolution in WWE had rung in an era of solidarity and equal footing for women as compared to the men in the sport. With WWE having numerous female employees working on and off camera, the company has ever since been in works for the upliftment of the women’s locker room. In terms of sports entertainment, WWE has taken the Women’s Division to the next level (and at par with Men’s) by introducing the first-ever Women’s Hell In A Cell Match, first-ever Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match, first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match, first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber Match in live Pay-Per-View events. On March 8, 2018, the women’s locker room including the Commissioner of Monday Night RAW, Stephanie McMahon took to twitter to celebrate the success of women in social, economic, cultural and political fields including how women across the globe, from the past and the present, have affected their lives in a positive manner.

 

Instagram was also decorated with inspirational posts coming straight from the WWE Women’s Roster.

Today being International Women's Day there are so many women that I honor, so many that I think of. Not just the women that I share roots with but fearless, brave women that took a stand and paved a road for every women and girl in this world. Today I want to honor Eleanor Roosevelt. President Truman called her the "First Lady of the World" because of all her human rights achievements. I recently read her book and I just couldn't put it down. I have always admired her quotes and her history. But I never would have thought how much I could learn from her now. Her international travels and education as a child, how she raised her kids, her vocal support in the civil rights movement, how she helped working women receive better wages … and the list goes on. It made me wish I read her book many years ago but it's never too late to learn. "Do one thing every day that scares,” she said. Eleanor, thank you for these words. Not only has it helped me break barriers in a man's industry, but it has helped me find and use my voice fearlessly. #BEEFEARLESS #mybirdiebee #pressforprogress #nationalwomensday Join us in our Bee Fearless campaign and share stories socially of women that inspire and motivate you, or women that you honor and want to recognize.

Today is International Women’s Day. When I think of International Women’s Day, I think of so many women. Women who have used their voices so loudly — whose actions needed no words and whose beliefs touched millions of lives. It’s hard to concentrate on one woman, but there’s a woman who has always stuck out to me, Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa gave her whole life to helping those in need. When I hear the word “selfless” she always pops into my head. Her gentle demeanor, her devotion and beautiful soul has always been so inspiring. I love her quote, “I alone can’t change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create ripples.” Thank you, Mother Teresa, for showing me the sweeter side of mankind. Let’s recognize the women who truly are fearless. #BeeFearless #mybirdiebee #pressforprogress #internationalwomensday ➡️ LINK in bio to join the Bee Fearless campaign 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
