Each year, International Women’s Day is celebrated to mark women’s achievements while calling for gender equality. The celebration has been observed since the early 1900s and is today recognised each year on March 8. We come across several events such as exhibitions, gigs, walks, conferences and discounts that are a must attend. There is something for everyone. It is fun to celebrate the day with your girl gang, but when you have a daughter, the day becomes special as it gives you the opportunity to understand the significance of the day and soak in the message. Celebrating the special day with your daughter will have a special impact on both of you. This Women’s Day let your daughter be surrounded by strong women. Let her understand what it means to be a woman. So hold your daughter’s hand, celebrate and feel empowered. Let the gorgeous places in Mumbai show you a great time on International Women’s Day 2018.

Let her know age is just a number
Never ask a woman her age, a man his salary and a student his marks. It is believed that women find it complimentary when someone assumes they are younger than they really are. Well, today’s women don’t think so. They believe that with age comes experience, grace and maturity. Our society is full of an example where many women have proved that age is just a number. If you are among those who believe age is just a number, let your teenager understand the same by flaunting your age.

Explore your love for chocolates and lipsticks
Chocolate is one thing in the world that never breaks any heart. It doesn’t ask silly questions, it understands. Chocolate never knows how to be demanding or dishonest. Falling for chocolates comes naturally to all of us. For a woman, after chocolate, the second dearest thing in her life is ‘red lipstick’. It boosts her confidence and gives the much required classy look.
