I love being a woman.
I have had the blessing of being supported and inspired by some very amazing women in my life. I feel that International Women's Day is a way of celebrating all women and how far things have come but also still bringing much needed awareness to how far things still must go. I truly believe that if we continue to share, support and advocate for other women here and the rest of the world the more our voices will be heard.
It starts in our community and how we all support each other as women. It also starts at home in how we are raising our children and what core values we are teaching them and showing them. As the mom of three boys I feel a huge sense of responsibility in how I educate them about women. I feel that same sense of responsibility with the women in my life both personally & professionally.
In saying that I am inspired everyday by so many brilliant women in my life. I love my job as I am able to connect with women everyday and learn about their lives and hear their stories. I asked a few women who inspire & uplift me to share what International Women's Day means to them and I love getting to share all their beautiful responses.
Here is what International Women's Day means to these inspiring women:
