100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day!

Leave a comment

What a beautiful day to celebrate women around the globe. Today let’s celebrate women as life-givers, CEOS, healers, police women, lawyers, mothers, teachers, fitness instructors, writers, engineers, community builders and all and every woman in between.

Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. And while we celebrate the beauty and value of women we also remember that women have not yet reached equality, especially on a global scale. We recommit ourselves to working to better the lives of women and for joining our voices with those voices who are often overpowered.

Here are some great reads around the web to help us celebrate (and remember) the importance of women around the globe.
