What is International Women's Day?
With the goal of helping to create a more gender-balanced world, International Women's Day is all about raising awareness against bias and taking action to promote equality. Whether providing inspiration for celebrating womanhood or protesting against injustices, International Women's Day has been an important day for over a century, and is even a public holiday in some countries.
From campaigns to events and supporting values that are really important in the modern world, there are lots of different ways you can get involved. Whether you're promoting International Women's Day in schools or getting involved in women's sport, you can be part of the efforts that help to accelerate gender parity as you follow in the footsteps of people like Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes.
Girl Bosses: #BalanceforBetter
The theme of International Women's Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter and you can read up on this initiative here. We hope you get inspired to take your place in creating an equal society, as everyone has a part to play.
Here at Ivy Rose Studio, we're doing our bit by being three empowered, confident girl bosses who provide a nurturing working environment for our marvellous team and a truly welcoming environment for our amazing clients. We are an all-female team and we are so proud of everyone who works here and the art we create. We all truly love what we do and we really hope that everyone who walks through our doors can feel that.
Empowerment for all - how does a photoshoot empower you?
Throughout history the female form has always been seen as a piece of art, which is what you are. If you want to celebrate your womanhood with the best women's photoshoot Manchester has to offer, take a look at the different shoots we have available here. With every photoshoot that takes place within our walls, we aim to create a masterpiece that celebrates the most important person in the world - you. You are bold, you are beautiful, you are whatever you want to be and we are here to help you see that.
Each shoot is tailored around you. Our fabulous team of make-up artists take their cue from you in creating a fabulous look that's tailored to your wants and desires, before they hand you over to your talented female photographer. They'll then guide you through a variety of poses that will make you look the best you possibly can, celebrating your figure in all its uniqueness. There is no set formula. We empower every woman we meet by celebrating what is unique about you. We hope to help you discover another, more confident side to yourself, that's maybe been lurking under the surface.
Raise a glass
To celebrate International Women's Day in Manchester, we shall be raising a glass of bubbly and thinking of all the women who have inspired us throughout our lives. For most of us, the first person on our list is our mum. Thinking ahead to Mother's Day at the end of the month, it may be a great opportunity for you to give your mum the gift of confidence.
There are many inspirational women out there, but who inspires you? We invite you to take a moment and celebrate all the women who have help to make you the woman you are today.
