March 8th – International Women’s Day


I read today that “The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911 and is celebrated annually on 8 March with thousands of events across the world.

It was honored for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19 March, where more than one million men and women attended rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination.” 

What a wonderful day to celebrate my mom, who is an inspiration to me every day, my daughter, who I aspire to inspire for the rest of her life and my sister, who reminds me to stay inspired each day and live a youthful life. I love you and all my female friends out there and wish you a very Happy International Women’s Day !
