International Women's Day


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. 

Susan B. Anthony, suffragist and women's rights activist

Harriet Beecher Stowe,  author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin."

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.

That's a lovely post - what a great idea to list the women you admire. I'm looking forward to your future post on Queen Boudicca.

Y'all have a nice IWD. Certainly good to see this come up so shortly after Mr. Limbaugh's misogynist bit of hate-speech last week.
