There is a more than 100 year-long history behind International Women's Day. The movement was born on March 8, 1908 when 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City to demand shorter hours, better pay, and the right to vote. The first International Women's Day event was held in 1911, but only in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. In a landmark move in 2011, to honor the centennial of the first International Women's Day event, President Barack Obama declared the entire month of March "Women's History Month" in the United States.
Globally, women have proven their capabilities as leaders and activists, insisting for a fairer, more inclusive world. They are still not represented equally at positions of power, but then, women are not waiting for an invitation to the table anymore. They are taking charge. Whether it is by demanding that men keep their hands to themselves via the #MeToo movement, or moving economic markets by assuming leadership roles in Fortune 500 companies, or running governments as Presidents or Prime Ministers in their countries.
And we have advanced enough in 100 years to become comfortable with our skins, our bodies and our thoughts, without wallowing in guilt about circumstances that are not in our control. We are comfortable with ourselves, and that’s why we are more confident in our relationships.
It is those beautiful, loving, unadulterated relationships that Fendi is celebrating with its Women’s Day special video, featuring businesswoman Grace Pen, her artist daughter Jossilyn Pen and the versatile Peekaboo bag.
This 8th and last episode of the 2nd wave of the #MeAndMyPeekaboo Chapter 2 sees Grace and Jossilyn immersed in the magical atmosphere of the Amanyangyun in Shanghai. Mother and daughter enjoy an intimate day together among architectural and ecological beauties in this unique place hosting ancient trees and houses saved form demolition and resulting in a 15-year conservation project to protect the heritage of the country.
While Grace defines her relationship with Jossilyn as “connected”, the daughter defines her mother as “loving”. And as women are multi-talented, adaptable, creative, quick thinkers, so is the Peekaboo with its multifaceted design, lively outlook and the multiple hidden and not-so-hidden pockets for those little necessities all women need. And why not? Especially since the bag was designed by another inventive woman – Silvia Venturini Fendi.
