Be bold for change

Women’s day was celebrated on 8th of March worldwide to appreciate the womanhood and to show commitment to gender equality. This year’s theme was ‘Be bold for change’ so as to encourage women and girls to accept who they are and be proud of themselves.

Holy Family Convent Bambalapitiya celebrated this day to appreciate womanhood while laying importance on gender equality. The students were gathered around the quadrangle to witness the event. After the prayer service which also valued women, the event began. Ten candles were lit in honour of women by few prefects.

Madame Dianne Uyangoda (Lawyer by profession and human rights activist) was invited to grace the occasion and voice out her thoughts on this special day. Her speech consisted of her life and how she balances everything which was inspirational. Moreover, she mentioned on cherishing the lives in front of us and motivated the girls which made them believe in who they are.

Sr.Deepa enlightened this young generation of women by expressing the message given by Pope Francis “Without women, there is no harmony in the world.” A song in appreciation of women was sung by a Familian which added more dainty to the event.

Lastly, the event ended by Familians singing along to a song which brought out and gave purpose to their inner fighting capabilities to achieve more in this world.
