For this year's International Women's Day, we asked poet Nikita Gill to put into words what the day means to her.

The poem she wrote pays tribute to all that women have overcome to be who they are.

A SACRED STORY
BY NIKITA GILL

​ You are already beautiful.​
You don’t have to look in the mirror ​
and see anything less than a victory dance,​
the bones of who you are forged in fire,​

​ the peace song in your heart​
praise for all the women you have been​
to become the woman you are today.​
You are your own sacred story.​

​ The world begins and ends with you.​
All you must do is remember ​
the wolf within you.​

What does International Women's Day mean to you?
