Smart and Sexy Day is celebrated annually on March 13, and we are thrilled to honour the intelligence, intellect, and ingenuity of magnificent women in a variety of professions. According to research, women make up approximately 49% of the global workforce. In recent years, women have been actively seeking employment and employment opportunities, and this trend is expected to continue.
The background of Smart and Sexy Day
Even during the era of prehistoric men who were all hunters and gatherers, women have been in the workforce. In agrarian societies, when men transitioned from hunters to farmers, women were at the forefront of farm produce processing and other duties related to their assigned role as the men’s support system at the time.
Historiographers have discovered and hypothesised that many ancient societies were matriarchal, with women at the centre of assuring the continued survival and existence of the family unit and, by extension, the society. In recent years, however, and as a result of new global narratives about what women should or should not do and which occupations are suitable for which gender, it has been difficult for a greater proportion of women to obtain employment, although the gap is being gradually closed.
The concept behind ‘Smart and Attractive’ is that women are intelligent and inventive when it comes to their careers and workplaces, as well as having the ability to dress with the confidence and professionalism that comes with the position. Therefore, it is a declaration of feminism and competence, of attractiveness and intelligence.
Educated and Sexy Day is an Alliance for Career Development Nonprofits initiative (A.C.D.N.). It is held annually in various parts of the globe to train and educate women on the importance of self-confidence when seeking employment and career opportunities. The organisation teaches women who attend the event how to maintain a professional attire regardless of their financial situation.
