Home Away from Home – International Women’s Day

8th March marks International Women’s Day (IWD) 2022, with #BreakTheBias as the theme this year.

The seeds of it were planted from a labour movement in 1908; 1500 women marched down the streets of New York for better pay, and the right to vote. Two years later, the day was officially set by Clara Zetkin and all the attendees during an International Working Women Conference in Copenhagen.

At LUMINE 2022, we dedicate IWD to celebrate Women’s achievements in the workplace, with a special focus on women who are working overseas, away from their homes.

Find out more from our own team and special guests on what IWD means to them:

 

Meet Dorothy from LUMINE family: Working away from home has been a three years journey for me. My daughters are my sources of strength. Thinking of their future is the reason to keep going, despite the loneliness of not seeing them.

Meet Iqa from LUMINE family: Adapting to Singapore can make me feel homesick even though it's common for me since I used to stay far from my family.
There was a moment that I wanted to give up after a year in Singapore. I missed my family, relatives, and friends where my happiness originated.

In my opinion, modern independent women are to have a ton of confidence and to distance themselves from the negativity.
