Pink power on International Women's Day!

A pink dress is the most appropriate outfit for the International Women's Day. And thoughened up with lace up leather boots, I'm ready to fight for justice!



A bit of sparkle never hurts!







































Did you know that the date - 8th. of March was decided on the meeting in Copenhagen 1910? We also had the first female minister (for Education) in the world.



Isn't this a knock out dress to fight for justice in?







































I personally feel very liberated and equal to men, but that's not at all the case in the rest of the world! There's a lot to change, recently proved by the horrible murders of young women in India and South Africa.



Not the usual brand!







































Apart from donating money to various charity organizations, the best thing to do is to use your vote, on politicians that actually make a difference. Too many people in the Western world don't vote!



Matching watch and tights







































Even within the developed countries of the Western world do we have different levels of equality between the sexes.

I'm so fortunate to live in a country where children's daycare is affordable to everyone, giving all women the opportunity to have a career.

We even have paternity leave! That's not the case everywhere, but a precondition for true equality. Most parents now share the time off after having had children.




Sleeve length - perfect!







































Thinking of those less fortunate women in poor countries I recently suggested to H&M that they give their customers the choice to donate the money on voucher you get at the end of the year.

I was informed that I could just have the money paid to me at any shop, and then donate it. In this digital era it's so easy to set up a button to click, making donation very easy.

I've seen it done at other web shops, so why not H&M? Well, they say they care, but obviously only to a certain extend!

Lots of love from the Pink Worrier!

Your dress is gorgeous, and your thoughts are so right-on. We still have a way to go for gender equality in the West; our pay scales aren't even equal yet. And you're right, we need to vote -- and run for office!

Beautiful both on the inside and the outside! Your new dress is gorgeous! CC I presume? Yes, we are very lucky that we live in Scandinavia, but as Patti said, the paycheck is still not equal! Have a great weekend my friend (another reason to thank the union movement!) !

Tine, you are a fantastic looking warrior! Pink is definitely your color and violet too, the coat also is great.
You are so right with your thoughts. I also feel liberated but knowing that this is a privilege does not make me satisfied.
Have a great weekend!

You are so right, we are so lucky in more developed nations. Gender inequality and massive bias still exist in the western world, but it's nothing compared to the horrific things happening to women in other parts of the globe, which are so commonplace they're often ignored.

I love your pinks and the darker coat overtop the dress. You go, girl! Xo

I love the dress and I love your thoughts on International Womens day.

Val Sparkle said...

Such good reminders for all of us to try to help women everywhere. In February I read about V-Day (http://onebillionrising.org/), a movement to end violence against women. I had never heard of it, but in February each year they have a day of action. I hope to bring more attention to it next year - but then, why should I wait?

Melanie said...

Pow Pow POW!!! Glad you're on our side! You said it. I completely echo your need-to-vote plea. You look ready to take on the world in that holy hotness of pink. Fantastic.

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Brilliant, thoughtful, AND gorgeous, wow!!! Your dress, coat, and accessories are indeed perfect - the green rings! Exactly right necklace. Thank you for articulating the ongoing need for change so beautifully, cheers to International Women's Day.

Rocking pink! You look fabulous.
We have a long way to go, it's ridiculous that in a country that calls itself "developed" Britain still has less women in government than India, a country may still refer to as "third world" x.

pao said...

You can say that again, and again, and again. What are we on now - 4th wave feminism? Retro-feminism? Think Pink! You look like a Woman Warrior alright!

pastcaring said...

Fabulous dress, love the colour, and of course those kick ass boots!
I think young women are being sold a tremendous lie when they are told that feminism is old-fashioned and all the battles have been won... Come on! There's still a long way to go! xxx

I like the contrast between the hard hitting boots and the softer material of the dress. Thanks for posting the photos and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

You are looking more beautiful every day. Your country, with its humane approach to life, intrigues me. And yes, you look ready for fight for justice, and I'm right there with you.

Hi Tine---

The "Other Vix" here, catching up; hope this finds you well.

Wonderful thoughts, a color that lights you up, a drape that does gorgeous things for your shape, and boots that are made for walking for justice or anything else.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sabine! I thought I should pop by and tell you that internet is not the same without you! Also a big congratulation to the win in the Eurovision song contest! You seem to do well when the competition is in Sweden! Next year we come to your side of the bridge and celebrate being Europeans!

fourseasonsonewardrobe said...

Sorry, I meant Tine, and not Sabine!

sabine said...

I just stopp by to say hello! Hope you are fine and have a good time!
