Honoring Women Around the World – 3/8/19

Today is International Women’s Day, a focal point for women’s rights around the world. It is a cause for protest in some countries, a reason to celebrate womanhood in others. On this day it is customary for men to give the women in their lives – friends, mothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters, colleagues, etc. – flowers and small gifts. [Source:]. Here is a beautiful map by the talented Dearbhla Kelly that honors female Irish inventors, social reformers, artists, scientists, a pioneering aviator and a mountaineer. “There could have been so many more. With one exception, all the women in our list are no longer with us, but all deserve to be celebrated and remembered into the future.” Click here to view the map and read more about these 40 remarkable women.
