“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!”Maya Angelou
- In 1920, after 72 years of struggle, women won the right to vote.
- In 1942, women were fiercely defending their country in World War II.
- In 1968, a first woman ran for President in the Democratic primaries.
- In the latter part of the 20th century, women were appointed to the Supreme Court.
As a result of all these efforts, we now see women in congress, in space, making their mark in the music industry, succeeding in sports, in politics, developing businesses, making the economy grow…Women were, are and will be everywhere!
Without a doubt, we remember Frida Kahlo’s inspiring words
“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”
International Women’s Day, on March 8, is a day in which women around the world are recognized. On that day women receive roses, and in return they grow gardens. They receive kind words, and in return they offer words of wisdom and motivation. They receive love, and in return they feel compassion for the whole world.
