Kathryn Bigelow Wins Big at Oscars – A Perfect Start to International Women’s Day

Posted by Kyle Design on March 8, 2010

Mark your calendars: today is International Women’s Day, annually celebrated on March 8th as a day of love, respect and appreciation for women’s achievements around the globe. And for those of us recovering from the Academy Award thrills last night, there’s certainly more than enough reason to pay tribute to Kathryn Bigelow today, the winning woman of the night and first-ever female to win an Oscar for Best Director. With a slew of successful films like Point Break, Blue Steel and now The Hurt Locker under her belt, the 58-year old award-winning filmmaker is an inspiration for doing what she loves, plain and simple:

Kudos to women everywhere who pursue their dreams without gender limitations.

Kathryn Bigelow is just one example of an inspirational, accomplished woman.

Let the inspirational woman in your life know she's the award-winner in your heart.

“If there’s specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies.” — Kathryn Bigelow

There’s also something to be said for the fact that her most notable competitor was actually ex-husband James Cameron, director of popular success Avatar. Really, it takes a humble woman to restrain herself from exploding into a series of Running Man dance moves and gloating to the extreme in such a moment of victory. Well done, Ms. Bigelow. Well done, indeed.

Joking aside, International Women’s Day truly is an occasion to celebrate women and what we are capable of. How lucky we are to have a day in which we can revel in the amazing successes we’ve made, and where we can congratulate one another in accomplishing what we love. Take today as an opportunity to pat your girlfriend, mom, wife, sister, female cousin or aunt on the back and show her just how special she really is.
