Valentine’s Day at Women LEAD


Written by Menuka, our 2012 Fellow.

Who says Valentine’s Day is just for lovers? For us, it’s about expressing our love for our near and dear ones and a celebration of who we are. On 14th February, Women LEAD organized an event for all our participants to get together and celebrate being girls! On a sunny day on February, most of our participants showed up to make cards for our loved ones with glitters and colors: girls were painting their nails, taking photos and eating cup cakes. We even watched the movie Miss Congeniality, which was super fun. It was also a special day for One Billion Rising, the movement to end violence against women, so we did a mural where we painted hearts and wrote what we each thought was the best part about being a girl. The room was filled with love: we exchanged cards and gave each other roses. It was a wonderful valentine filled with smiles and love!
