HOW TO CELEBRATE THE DAY?
Send cards to the favorite ladies in your life—whether it’s your mom, significant other, best friend, or an old mentor you’ve been meaning to reach out to.

Invest in the future of women- Donate to or get involved with an organization that supports and inspires the generation of women.

Promote women- Organize a women’s day special engagement in your company and aware the mass towards struggle and respect for womanhood.
Connect in person- What better excuse to get together with some of your nearest and dearest than a day all about celebrating women
-Self-Protection Tips for Ladies
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES
This is the best way to remain safe. No matter where you are, be vigilant. Keep your eyes and ears open for people in the area, possible hazards, and available escape routes. That means if you’re walking home alone at night, no mindless chattering on a cell phone, and no listening to an MP3 player. Anyone looking to commit a crime of opportunity will be searching for the easiest target, and headphones are a sure sign that you’re distracted and vulnerable. Your hearing is a valuable tool—don’t shut it down when you need it most.
PROJECT AN AIR OF CONFIDENCE
Criminals seek to target women who look like they won’t fight back.
Walk with purpose; even if you don’t know where you’re going, pretend that you do. If someone appears to be following you, don’t meekly avoid his gaze. Turn around and look him in the eye. Not only does that give you a chance to get a good look at a potential attacker (thus making it easier for you to identify him later), but making eye contact is also an aggressive gesture that suggests you’re not afraid.

KNOW THE REAL RISKS
The majority of rapes occur 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and 41 percent of rapes take place in the victims’ homes. The survey reveals that assaults and rapes in deserted parking lots or garages are relatively rare (comprising only 2.2 percent of attacks). 73 percent of sexual assaults are actually committed by someone the victim knows, not a stranger, and that women are much more likely to experience violence in or near their home than in a public spot.

  6. 6. Self-Protection Tips for Ladies  BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES This is the best way to remain safe. No matter where you are, be vigilant. Keep your eyes and ears open for people in the area, possible hazards, and available escape routes. That means if you’re walking home alone at night, no mindless chattering on a cell phone, and no listening to an MP3 player. Anyone looking to commit a crime of opportunity will be searching for the easiest target, and headphones are a sure sign that you’re distracted and vulnerable.

Not only does that give you a chance to get a good look at a potential attacker (thus making it easier for you to identify him later), but making eye contact is also an aggressive gesture that suggests you’re not afraid.
  7. 7. Self-Protection Tips for Ladies  KNOW THE REAL RISKS The majority of rapes occur 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and 41 percent of rapes take place in the victims’ homes. The survey reveals that assaults and rapes in deserted parking lots or garages are relatively rare (comprising only 2.2 percent of attacks). 73 percent of sexual assaults are actually committed by someone the victim knows, not a stranger, and that women are much more likely to experience violence in or near their home than in a public spot.  TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS If your gut tells you that a situation is unsafe, get out as soon as possible. If your gut tells you that a person has bad intentions, listen. Your intuition is responding to outside stimuli you may not comprehend or even notice, so even if you don’t understand why you feel fearful or hesitant, don’t dismiss the feeling. But remember—your instincts could also tell you that a person means no harm or is not a threat.
  8. 8. Self-Protection Tips for Ladies  DON’T FEEL PRESSURED TO BE NICE Many opportunists prey on women’s natural inclination to be helpful. If you’re alone and a stranger asks for directions, the time, or help looking for his keys/car/contact lenses/puppy, it’s okay to say, “Sorry,” and keep moving. While not every man who requests assistance is a potential attacker, many potential attackers do use these tactics to distract their victims.  NEVER CARRY MORE THAN YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE If you’re the victim of a purse snatching or mugging, don’t risk injury fighting to save your possessions—let them go. A wallet’s worth of cash can make you think you have to put up a fight, but your life is worth more than the contents of your purse. Keep your house keys in a pocket when you’re walking, so that if a mugger or robber gets your purse, you’ll still be able to get into your home, and the assailant won’t have access to it.
  9. 9. Success Guidelines for working women Publicize your work: The priciest diamond has no value while buried in the earth. Similarly, an executive's achievements are not recognised till they are communicated to the world. Know that you have to highlight your contributions and blow your own trumpet. Find mentors : Seek people who are willing to teach and can compress your learning time from years to months. From their wealth of experience or understanding, they help you master better work attitude and skills and negotiate challenges Learn to be assertive: Stand up, and speak up as well. Assertiveness is not just a good skill to have, but an essential tool for a professional. Go for results: What are the results expected of you? Which targets will get you promotions, increments and awards? Know them well and chart out a route to get there. During the performance review, who you are matters less than the actual results you have delivered
  10. 10. Success Guidelines for working women Invest in your team : Help your team members succeed. A career path is much like climbing the Mount Everest; you can reach the top only with competent team members who deliver results Manage the breaks : Whether it's maternity leave, illness or extraneous circumstances, you can manage your break keeping your career needs in mind. Returning from a break, you will only need to convince potential employers that you are as sharp as ever and an invaluable asset Be a professional : Professionalism knows no gender. Pull up those socks; the results and reputation are worth the effort. Show up on time for work, meetings and events every single time. Treat each deadline like an airline flight and make sure that you deliver at least an hour before it Multitasking doesn't work : Stop multitasking and your effectiveness will shoot up dramatically. Focus on the present moment and immerse in the task at hand. If unable to complete, reschedule and remove it from your mind.
  11. 11. MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME • Save 4 hours a month. Automate routine expenditure and investment tasks. Link regular bill payments to your credit card or bank account. Link your bank account to an automatic/recurring deposit scheme. Automate Ask service providers to send online bills/statements. These save you the time to record and file. finances Work the commute • Add up to 10 hours a week. If you commute by car, invest in a driver or join a car pool. Use this time to answer e-mails, make calls, write notes, catch up with friends or even take a nap. If you travel by public transport, try juggling your travel schedule to get a less crowded ride and elbow room to use the time productivity. • Add 1 hour every day. Invest in a good smartphone, Internet on the go, and learn how the phone works. Treat your device as a mobile computer that also makes calls. Now, put empty, wasted minutes during the day to good use—catch up on reading books, answer routine e-mails or research your industry Smarten numbers the phone Shop online Reward the staff • Save 4 hours a month.
