Celebrate women...

Women and girls drive our economies. They build peace and prosperity. Investing in them means investing in global economic progress, political stability, and greater prosperity for everyone -- the world over. So let us mark this day by finding ways to ensure women and girls' access to education, health care, jobs, and credit, and to protect their right to live free from violence. ~ Hillary Clinton

Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women from past to present. Around the world thousands of speeches, tributes, events, parties, and even holidays are under way to celebrate and inspire women. Women's rights have come a long way over the one hundred years since the very first celebration, and the road stretched before us continues that journey each and everyday. 
Whether we are workers, mothers, daughters, grandmothers or all of those wrapped as a harmonious whole, we have power and a strong voice. Sometimes it is forthright and loud... Sometimes it is soft and gentle. Whatever your expression, don't let fear stop you. Be heard... Be seen. Know that you are a beautiful and meaningful spirit who may be one person in this big ever-changing world, but the world to one person...
God bless each and every lovely lady... xoxo-Sonya
