"A woman is like a tea bag – you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
In March of 1911 men and women alike gathered around to mark the very first International Working Women’s Day. It was such a popular celebration that it was soon expanded to a week and by the 1980's women were being celebrated all month long and all over the world.
There are many female pioneers throughout history: Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Mother Teresa (just to name a very, very few) and I am always astounded by the strength and determination of women when faced with adversity. So let's celebrate women, shall we?
Tell us about a woman (or women) who has (have) rocked the world in your eyes – someone who has made a difference in the lives around her. It doesn't always take a major event to change the world we live in; sometimes it only takes a few ripples to reach an entire pond. Who is YOUR hero?
