Women History Month at Cashblack

March is a special month for Cashblack, as we celebrate and honour the achievements and contributions of women around the world with no less than 3 key dates for your diary

The first of which will be Ghanaian Independence Day on March 6, marking the 67th anniversary of Ghana’s liberation from British colonial rule in 1957. We salute the brave and visionary women who fought for freedom and justice, such as Yaa Asantewaa, who led the War of the Golden Stool against the British invaders and Theodosia Okoh, who designed the Ghanaian flag.

On March 8, we join the global community in observing International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, and to raise awareness about the challenges and inequalities they still face. This year’s theme is #InspireInclusion, which calls on us to challenge gender bias and discrimination, and to create a more inclusive world.

On March 10, we show our love and appreciation to our mothers and mother figures on Mother’s Day, a day to recognize the vital role they play in our lives and society. Whether it’s with a card, a gift, or a hug, let’s make them feel special and valued.

Throughout the month, we also spotlight some of the inspirational Black British women who have made a positive impact on the world in various fields and domains. From Mary Seacole, the pioneering nurse who cared for wounded soldiers during the Crimean War, to Dame Vivian Hunt, the influential businesswoman and managing partner of McKinsey & Company in the UK and Ireland, these women have shown us what it means to be leaders, innovators, and trailblazers.

Stay tuned for more posts featuring these amazing women and their stories, and join us in celebrating Women’s History Month with Cashblack.
