International Women’s Day – 8th March 2017

International Women’s Day 2017 campaign theme: #BeBoldForChange

Get ready to celebrate the inspirational women of this world and the list is endless … here are some of the women who continue to inspire me.  Women who have the guts to stick their heads above the parapet and speak their minds for the greater good of many.

Hillary Clinton – first female nominee for a major party in the presidential race and quoted in 2016 as saying

“I do think it will make a very big difference for a father or a mother to be able to look at their daughter, just like they can look at their son and say, ‘You can be anything you want to be in this country, including President of the United States.’”
