What International Women's Day Means to Israeli Musician & Actress Ninet Tayeb
Did you ever ask yourself why there's a day in a year that's called Women's Day? It's a fantastic idea to celebrate our gender and the idea that we are stronger than what we think, of course... But why do we need a day for it?
I think that the core of this idea puts us — strong and powerful women — in a position where we need to prove it. And we don't. I believe we have to be present and strong and smart and active and sensitive 365 days a year.
Every day in our mind and body and soul is a reason to celebrate. Each and every one of us can make a difference by starting the day with a wide smile to the world.
One woman who makes me smile and dance wildly almost every morning is my undeniable queen, PJ Harvey.
It starts with the way she writes and expresses herself and ends with the path she's walking on — all the way from Dorset in southwest England to the whole world. She's loyal and true to her inner voice, and the most important thing: She keeps evolving all the time, never more of the same. "And it's the best thing, such a beautiful feeling."
Cheers my ladies,
About Ninet Tayeb: Ninet has definitely made a name for herself, and it all started back when she was first known for winning Israeli Idol. Her debut album took less than a day to go platinum and yielded five No. 1 singles — not to mention a long-running TV series (which she starred in) based on her life. Now, she is releasing her fifth album Paper Parachute, a collection of hefty rock songs with deep resilience, fierce determination and disarming vulnerability.
