Women's Day | A Feast of Light and Words

International Working Women's Day (abbreviated as IWD), also known as "International Women's Day", "March 8" and "March 8 Women's Day", is a holiday established on March 8 every year to celebrate the important contributions and great achievements of women in the economic, political and social fields. 

Bing Xin once said, if there is no woman in the world, the world will lose at least five-tenths of the "truth", six-tenths of the "goodness", seven-tenths of the "beauty".


It's a holiday that celebrates the strength and accomplishments of women. On this special day, here are a few great women's power movies and books for the resilience, wisdom and strength of women.


The movie“Still Alice” 

Adapted from the novel "I Miss Myself", the movie tells the story of Alice Howland, a successful fifty year old woman who lives a strong and courageous life despite a serious illness.


The movie "The Piano Lesson”

This is a movie that shows women's self-awakening and pursuit of freedom. Ada, the female protagonist, uses the piano to express her inner emotions in silence, and her music becomes a bridge for her to communicate with the world. Through delicate emotional depiction, the movie explores women's struggles and choices in marriage, love and self-realization.


Book《 When You Fly Like a Bird to Your Mountain》

This is an autobiographical novel, a story of redemption and liberation. As long as you spread your wings like a bird and strive to pursue your dreams and goals, you will surely be able to reach the top of your mountain.


Book《The Star Post Office》 

This book tells the story of her life experience of bringing her son back to life after her husband's death due to illness and in the gloom of losing the love of her life. We come into her story either because of her deep love and bravery or her strength and independence, both impressed by her love for Khu and shocked by the family's sudden catastrophe, a life that is so desperate but loves to work hard to engage with the world and love life.

Happy Women's Day!

 Each of these movies and books explores female strength and value from a different perspective. They are not only the transmission of knowledge, but also the power to inspire thinking and action.

On this Women's Day, let's feel the power, charm and ability of women through movies and books. At the same time, I hope more women can bravely pursue their dreams and show their true selves!
