International Women’s Day: Celebration of Women

Happy International Women’s Day to all the Ayabas all over! Today, we celebrate you along with all the amazing women across the world!

IWD is a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of all women. It is also about unity of women, celebration of women, reflection of how far women have come, advocacy of women, and action of women! It isn’t a day to bash or demean men, but it is a day to celebrate the strides women have made within society. We’ve gone from only being housewives, to owning businesses, having amazing careers, and making policies and laws that rule society.

So how exactly did IWD come about? We’ll give you a super short cliffnotes version ;-)!

The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911. Many women’s equality groups arose during the early 1900s due to the climate and conditions surrounding women. This birthed the rise of women’s marches. In 1908, 1500 women marched in the streets of NY demanding better work conditions such as shorter hours, better pay, and voting rights. In 1913, members of Delta Sigma Theta sorority Inc. marched in the women’s suffrage parade despite being encouraged not to due to the color of their skin. These marches and movements produced a revolution.

Because of the efforts of women, National Women’s Day was observed in the US on February 28th, 1909. In 1910, at the 2nd International Conference for working women, Clara Zetkin (the chairperson for the conference) proposed the idea of International Women’s Day. She said every year, every country should celebrate it on the same day. All the women in attendance approved, and they honored March 8th of every year to be IWD. From there, the IWD movement and many other women’s movements began. Women of all colors, backgrounds, and ethnicities came together to fight for gender parity and women’s rights.

Today, IWD continues to fight the good fight by celebrating women’s achievements, and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality. Every year has a theme, and this year’s theme is “Each for Equal“. The mission is to fight for a gender equal world.

We at ayabaconnect choose to celebrate IWD, because of all the prominent women who have been badasses, and fought the fights that were needed for us to advance. From the Fumnilayo Kutis to the Marsai Martins, we celebrate the barriers women have broken. In addition to celebrating, we also choose to advocate for the women all over who are still oppressed, and aren’t afforded the same opportunities we have.

We honor and celebrate all of you. The women who wake up everyday and show up. Who selflessly use their talents and skills to make the world a better place. We see you, and we thank you!

So here’s to strong women! May we be them, may we know them, may we raise them! Happy International Women’s Day sisters! Comment below and tell us why you celebrate International Women’s Day!

6 Types of Men (N*ggas) on Valentines Day | By Osamudiamen


Here at AyabaConnect, as you all know were a supported of others. This is why he had to get a post from one our FAV BLOGGERS EVER. Queen Osamudiamen has blessed us with the guide to men on Vday! To check it out, just keep scrolling!


Happy Valentine’s and Gyalentine’s Day, niggas! Today is a day to celebrate ourselves and others in the name of love! In doing so, I’ve created a guide of the different types of niggas that exist on Valentine’s Day. Ladies, you’ll know which one you have, and gentlemen, you’ll know which one you are! Let’s get it!

1. The “Pussy is not a gift” Valentine’s Day Nigga

“Pussy agaiiiiiiiiin?……oh..ok…”

This nigga is fed up with the notion that Valentine’s Day is just for women. He wanna be wined and dined and have his back blown out after dinner too, ladies. In short, he’s tired of you bitches. He feels as though the bomb ass pussy you got is not a gift, but a “requirement” so this gift does not suffice. Shaving your pubes into the shape of Cupid’s bow and arrow also does not cut it for this man, ladies. I hear you and I’m actually not mad at this type of nigga and he’s got a great point. PUSSY IS NOT A lVALENTINE’S DAY GIFT. If you gon be lazy with it, you might as well just say, “Babe I didn’t know what to get you so I didn’t get anything” and just blow his back out later on without telling him your pussy is the gift. He already knows it’s wetter than a Seaquarium *yawns*. Personally I think Valentine’s Day is a time for both parties to celebrate love, whatever that means for the both of y’all. Communication is key and both parties taking time to learn one another is crucial!

2. The “Pussy is all I need for Valentine’s Day” nigga

Your pussy so good this man has no problem not receiving shit from you other than pussy for Valentine’s Day. He just appreciates you allowing him to be inside of you. This could be your man, your friends with benefits, or your “bro” (some of y’all love calling these niggas your brother, but wholetime them yeeks getting clapT). PATHETIC. He only needs your time. However, In return of the laziness of your gift, there may be uncertainty in what you’ll receive from him. If he’s your man, he might still do something special, but he also might just gift you with some meaty-oaker dick as well and call it a day. Beware of this nigga ladies. He has no standards.

3. The “Ima take you out February 15th cuz I was tied up at ‘work’ on Valentine’s Day” nigga

Uhhhhh ladies…sorry to break it to y’all but if you still falling for this okie doke, you MIGHT need to get an MRI. This nigga ain’t shit and YOU might be a clown. If he has not officially informed you that you are the side chick, welcome to my Ted Talk. Hello, it’s nice to meet you. However, if he has informed you, he’s an upstanding Piece of Shit and you might just be a dumbass. Keyword is MIGHT, though. Times are changing and some women are perfectly cool with being the side chick because there may still be perks to this deal: great sex, food, gifts, shit…all the shit he probably does with his girl but it could be better or worse. You never know with these niggas ladies so you chancing it. I don’t judge and I’m not gon tell you to dub it (even though you should), all ima say in this situation is don’t be a dumb bitch, know what’s going on, don’t have any expectations for this kind of man, and keep yourself at peace. And stop lurking his girlfriend IG. She don’t know about you, goofy. 

4. The “Everyday is Valentine’s Day so I don’t gotta do shit today” nigga 

I don’t know how I truly feel about this type of man. Niggas loveeeeee saying this shit yet only do the bare minimum on the daily so I generally don’t buy it. There he is. Just like that sloth. Just looking goofy thinking he’s doing something but not at all. I just cannot call it. There ACTUALLY are men who spoil their women on the regular though (never experienced, believe it’s a myth, but I think I’ve read about this phenomenon somewhere so I won’t say it’s totally untrue). Ladies this one is totally dependent on the kind of man you have and how well you know him so I’ll just leave this one at that LOL. 

5. The nigga who actually tries to make Valentine’s Day amazing for you because he loves you and not because he has the expectation that you’re going to do something grandiose for him

These niggas are the best type of niggas. What they do for you and is independent of their expectation of you. They just want to do for you because they love you. They are generally observant and know exactly what you would like and what would make you smile and happy. They love showering you with love and you never have to question their love for you. This is the guy you do everything for. This is the guy whose face you always want to keep a smile on and because he cares about doing the same for you. He’s a blessing. Abeg, this is the kind of nigga I’m looking for. If you are reading this and this is you, make your way to my DM’s, please and thank you. 

6. And the niggas who don’t got nobody but themselves for Valentine’s Day 

Regardless of the type of man you have, I say all of this to say, everyday is a day of love and to love but Valentine’s Day is the day to do the most with it! All types of love too. It’s not just about romantic love. It’s okay if you’re alone today watching Netflix. Me too, Chile and I’m not mad one bit. Send your momma flowers. Gift your best friends something sweet. Celebrate yourself. Love on yourself. Remind yourself how beautiful, amazing, and worthy you are everyday but especially today! If you are celebrating love today with someone, I pray you all keep the love going and live in eternal happiness and peace.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! 💓

Love for self, and love for others. Whether you are your own Valentine this year, or are spending time with someone special—play this and set your V-Day plans in motion. Enjoy.
