International Women Day is celebrated worldwide on March 8th since 1911; it is a time to reflect on the transitions made, to call for future positive change, and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role and thus created the history.
ZeeArts Community celebrate the women’s day with aplomb as the founder- artist activist Zaahirah Muthy is a feminist and has been in the forefront of the empowerment of women since past 15 years during her residing days in her native land Mauritius and since last six years in Dubai. She has been involved in the various projects including the education and empowerment of Women drug addicts, women ailing with HIV and AIDS, commercial sex workers, divorcee, single parent, victims of domestic violence and unemployed women. Her experienced whilst dealing with the down trodden of the society has further strengthened her belief that, we women are very important fabric of society and has the power to be BOLD TO BRING CHANGES;
‘We, all have the absolute power and opportunities to Be Bold and to bring changes in our life, our family and our society as a daughter, as a sister, as a wife, as a mother or as a leader’ said Zaahirah. She realized that how a woman has an ability to reach out, express, emote and move people and how she can use creative portrayals in actually helping raise community awareness.
