Who run the world?! GIRLS.
What better time to push through with your Girls’ Night Out (GNO) plans than now during Women’s Month?
Throughout history, women have gone a long way that without them, we wouldn’t be experiencing all the rights we experience today; from having the right to vote, to defying stereotypes like having the choice to step out of the house and having the right to education, to finally being able to wear trousers, among many other things!
This women’s month, we celebrate all women… from the women in history to the women we hold dearly.
A GNO is the perfect simple gesture you and your girl friends can show how much you love and appreciate each other and to help you get planning, here are places where you can go out and about and enjoy the company of your best girls!
