Today, March 8th is International Women’s Day. And what better way to celebrate it than to shine a light on the famous women who have contributed to society with their talent, perseverance, and timeless wisdom.

Women’s day has emerged as such in the early 1900s from the movements for women’s rights. Much has been achieved since those days, but much remains to be done in the fight of gender equality. To quote a historical figure by the name of Golda Meir, “Whether women are better than men I cannot say – but I can say they are certainly no worse.”
