Today, let's celebrate those who have gone before us for their talents, courage and fierce determination.
Here are some of the women I have admired throughout my life, all of whom made the world a better place. May we strive to do the same.
|Jane Austen, the master|
|Queen Boudicca of the Iceni (more on her story later this month)|
|Virginia Woolf, writer and incredible mind|
|Members of the Feminist Movement|
To me, International Women's Day is not only about those who have made a huge impact on the world, but also those who make our individual worlds better places. I wish my mom were here today so I could tell her how much her example of kindness, love and strength made an indelible mark upon my soul.
I leave you with a song, "Shaking the Tree" by Peter Gabriel and Youssou Ndour.
