Here’s to strong women! May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.
Women are amazing and on Sassy Mama, we celebrate them every single day! This year, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, we decided to shout about it from the rooftops. We want to raise a toast to Hong Kong’s many inspirational women and girls and highlight those people, brands and businesses that have always gone above and beyond to support women.
There’s a difference between equity and equality. Equality is about giving individuals equal access to resources or opportunities, the onus is on the individual, as to what they do with this. Equity on the other hand looks at the individual difference and gives people what they need to get everyone to the same level. In 2023, it’s becoming more obvious that equality is a great starting point, but isn’t enough. So what have we got lined up?
For starters, we’re turning the spotlight on empowering women in Hong Kong to find out how they see the place of women and girls in the city and what #EmbraceEquity means to them. One of the biggest challenges to women in terms of equity happens during the transition to motherhood and returning to work. We asked a career coach to take a look at the work culture right here in Hong Kong to empower you to ask — Is Your Workplace Up To Scratch?
So Mama, how do you #EmbraceEquity? Join us in making a life-long commitment to respect, equality and fairness.
