International Woman’s Day

In honor of the women who have inspired, paved the way and given hope to so many of us, Women’s Day is an important time for everyone, young or old, male or female to express our appreciation for woman’s achievements and contributions.

“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.”      Hillary Rodham Clinton

a1Although it’s only building steam in the US, International Woman’s Day is an official holiday in 28 countries around the world. The idea for a Women’s Day can be traced back to the late nineteenth century & the beginning of the woman’s suffrage movement. Honoring and celebrating the overlooked contributions of women.

“If women didn’t exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.”     Aristotle Onassis

Women’s Dayis not about asserting the superiority of one gender over the other. It’s a day to commemorate the contribution women have made to our lives and to spare a thought for unfortunate women, who live in tyrannical societies.

“The test for whether or not you can hold a job should not be the arrangement of your chromosomes.” a2
Bella Abzug

“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.”     Faith Whittlesey

“Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
